Arcade Community Blood Drive for Unyts

 

The Arcade Community is teaming up with Unyts to ensure that blood products are available for patients in need this summer. The demand for blood tends to outpace supply during the summer season, but Western New Yorkers have an opportunity to change that trend at an upcoming Unyts blood drive.

 

On Saturday, July 21st the blood drive will run from 9:00am-1:00pm at Crossroads Church.  All presenting donors will receive a free t-shirt.

 

The Arcade Community has been so supportive of the blood drive, and many different people are pitching in to help make sure it is a success- the VFW, EMT’s, the Chamber, and the Crossroads Church groups.

 

To schedule an appointment to donate blood, please contact Unyts at 716-512-7940, or you can sign up online at www.unyts.org and click on Donate Blood. Walk-ins always welcome!
