New York Blood Center (NYBC) has declared a blood emergency and is asking the public to please find time to donate blood to help replenish the community's blood supply. O negative blood donors are considered "universal," and their blood type is needed most readily in trauma situations and emergency departments across the country. Due to its high demand, O negative blood is in short supply, and NYBC encourages individuals with this blood type to consider stepping forward and donating today. Our local blood supply has reached a critically low level, with less than a two-day supply of O negative, B negative, and A negative blood.
The entire donation process takes less than an hour, and a single donation can be used to save multiple lives. Please consider donating today!
