East Aurora Community Blood Drive for Unyts

 

The East Aurora community is teaming up with Unyts to ensure that blood products are available for patients in need this summer. The demand for blood tends to outpace supply during the summer season, but Western New Yorkers have an opportunity to change that trend at an upcoming Unyts blood drive.

 

On Saturday, August 4th the blood drive will run from 10:00am-2:00pm at the East Aurora Fire Department.  All presenting donors will receive a free t-shirt.

 

The East Aurora community has been so supportive of the blood drive, and many different people are pitching in to help make sure it is a success- East Aurora Fire and Police, East Aurora High School, Boys & Girls Club, Immaculate Conception Church and School, and the Village of East Aurora.

 

To schedule an appointment to donate blood, please contact Unyts at 716-512-7940, or you can sign up online at www.unyts.org and click on Donate Blood. Walk-ins always welcome!
