Every December and June, BJ partners with the New York Blood Center to organize a community-wide blood drive. We have recently scheduled additional blood drives to address the severe blood shortage in our region due to the pandemic. Though these drives provide great opportunities to become a donor, donations for patients of every age, ethnicity, and blood type are desperately needed all year round, and many of us are capable of giving up to six times a year. When just one pint of blood from a single donor can save up to three lives, each and every one of us can make the choice to be someone’s hero. Visit the New York Blood Center website to schedule an appointment to give. If you would like to volunteer at a BJ blood drive please contact Kiana Davis, Social Action and Social Justice Manager.
