Mount Sinai Queens Blood Drive

One pint can save three lives! Since blood expires after 45 days, the demand for blood is always high. One pint contains platelets and plasma needed for cancer patients, so give blood and save lives. New York Blood Center vans will be across the street from Mount Sinai Queens all day. Call 800-688-0900 if you have any questions.
