Nassau Community College (NCC), in conjunction with Nassau University Medical Center, invites the community to make blood donations during its annual spring blood drive scheduled from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the College Center Building.
NCC, along with Nassau University Medical Center, hopes to supply a substantial percentage of our area’s ongoing need for blood products. The drive also reflects the college’s six times a year effort to encourage all able individuals to participate in this vital activity. Make an appointment to give blood by calling Barbara Vollmer at 516-572-7883, or just stop in that day to give blood. The donation process takes less than an hour and refreshments will be served to participants. Blood donors must be at least 17 years old and in good health. Donors should come with some photo identification. Although small snacks will be provided, we ask that donors eat before donating.
