Blood Drive 2020

Assemblyman Edward Braunstein’s 8th annual summer blood drive is set to take place on Thursday, August 6 from 2:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Bay Terrace Shopping Center, located at 212-51 26th Avenue.

The event is hosted in conjunction with the New York Blood Center.

“Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is an urgent need for blood donors,” Braunstein said. “Each blood donation saves up to three lives, so I hope you will take the time to share this lifesaving gift.”

Donations are by appointment only. Donors must:

  • Wear a mask or face covering and have your temperature taken
  • Must be 14 days symptom free if recovered from COVID-19
  • Not donate if you have had a positive diagnostic test or experienced symptoms in the last 14 days
  • Not donate if you are currently on self-quarantine
