WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Each year during the winter months, blood banks see a noticeable dip in blood supply available for donation. To help combat the cyclical trend, White Plains Hospital is asking residents to back their favorite first responders in a “Boots vs. Badges vs. Bandages” blood drive.
This creative 'competition' engages blood donors to provide support for their favorite first responders: fire fighters, police officers and EMS providers.
The free event will be held in White Plains Hospital’s Centennial Room in the main Hospital Building on Saturday, Dec. 3 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. All who donate and vote for their favorite first responders will receive a free t-shirt and be entered into a raffle to receive one of three new 40-inch televisions.
For more information, contact the Blood Donor Center at White Plains Hospital at (914) 681-1056.
