Bayside Assemblyman Edward Braunstein is hosting a blood drive on Thursday, Aug. 14 from 4 to 8:30 p.m. at the Bay Terrace Shopping Center on 212th Street and 26th Avenue.
“Every donation helps to save up to three lives,” Braunstein said. “Our hospitals are in need of your help, so I hope you will take the time to share this lifesaving gift.”
Each donor will receive two Mets tickets by mail, thanks to the New York Blood Center.
To be eligible, donors have to be between the ages of 16 and 75, weigh at least 110 pounds and not have any new tattoos within the last year.
Donors are asked to drink fluids before arriving and to bring photo ID.
For more information, contact Braunstein’s office at 718-357-3588.
