Westchester County has teamed up again with the New York Blood Center’s Hudson Valley Blood Services to sponsor a blood drive on Sept. 12, part of a week of volunteer events by the county in honor of those who died on Sept. 11, 2001.
The Marylou Seaman County Employees Blood Drive is open to the general public as well as county employees. It will take place at the Westchester County Center from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Anyone between the ages of 16 and 76, weighing at least 110 pounds, is eligible.
The public is encouraged to donate blood to ease the persistently low supply of whole blood and platelets. Double red blood cells will be collected as well as regular units of blood.
People can register by calling Janet Lokay at 995-2127 or by emailing her at JEL1@westchestergov.com.
