Long Island Blood Drive Coming This June

Long Island is facing a blood shortage and the town of Oyster Bay is hosting a blood drive for World Blood Donor Day June 14th.

All blood types are being accepted and appointments are required.

The blood collection drive will be from 1 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 14 at the Hicksville Athletic Center,167 S. Broadway in Hicksville. All donators will receive a voucher for a free Blizzard from Dairy Queen!

To qualify as a donor, a person must be between the ages of 17 and 75 years old (can be 16 with parental permission and 76 or older with a doctor’s note), weigh at least 110 pounds, and not have donated blood within the last 56 days. Anyone who received a tattoo within the past 12 months is ineligible to donate. It is recommended that donors eat well (low fat) and drink fluids in the days before they donate blood.
