As the need for blood increases, the pool of donors has not. Sixty percent of Americans are eligible blood donors—but only 5 percent donate annually. Last year, blood donations to Long Island Blood Services increased by 12 percent, which is an improvement, but it’s not enough to keep up with the demand. Your donation will help to save lives. Our community hospitals need your help. Please share this life-saving gift and donate now!
