New York Blood Center (NYBC) has declared a blood emergency due to a significant drop in blood donations preceding and following Memorial Day weekend. In the past few weeks, donations have been 2,100 units short of what is needed to meet hospital demand, placing a strain on the region’s blood supply heading into the summer months that are typically marked by a spike in traumas. Annually, more than 56,000 traumas are reported in New York State, the majority of which occur on weekends and during the summer months. Blood transfusions are often needed to treat traumas, and a spike in traumatic accidents can cause a strain on the blood supply. Additionally, school breaks, travel, and busy summer schedules make blood donation less of a priority and often lead to seasonal shortages.

Please remember to eat, drink, and bring your donor ID card or ID with name and photo.
