New York Blood Center (NYBC) recently announced a blood emergency, as the region’s ongoing heatwave and summer travel have caused a significant decrease in donations over the past several weeks. The blood supply currently stands at a 1–2-day level, which is well below the ideal level of 5-7-days.


NYBC will host a blood drive Wednesday, August 17, from 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM at Palisades Center. The NYBC will be located on Level One near H&M so guests can conveniently give the gift of life while shopping.


All presenting blood donors will receive a voucher to redeem a free pint of beer, cider, wine or soft drink at a local participating brewery or restaurant.


To make an appointment, donors can call 1-800-933-2566 or visit https://www.nybc.org/donate-blood/. Can’t donate blood? You can still support NYBC’s mission by texting ‘NYBC’ to ‘20222’ to give $25.


The NYBC is taking extra precautions to help prevent the person-to-person spread of COVID-19. As always, people are not eligible to donate if they are experiencing a cold, sore throat, respiratory infection, or flu-like symptoms. Additional information on donor eligibility and COVID-19 precautions are available here.

WHERE: Level One near H&M, 1000 Palisades Center Drive, West Nyack, NY 10994

WHEN: Wednesday, August 17, 2022, from 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM. Pre-registration is available at https://www.nybc.org/donate-blood/.

WHO: Most people qualify as a volunteer donor. Review the eligibility criteria to see if you can be a lifesaver.

WHY: One pint of blood can save up to three lives.
