There has been a drop in blood donations since the start of the pandemic. At the same time, the need for blood for patients in our local hospitals has increased by 10-15% from pre-pandemic levels, from pent-up demand for treatment and surgeries postponed during the pandemic. Please consider donating blood to help other New Yorkers.
