Weber Middle School Blood Drive

New York Blood Center (NYBC) is asking for help to rebuild an adequate three-day supply of O-negative blood – reserves are currently running at half that, and turnout at blood drives so far in January has been far less than expected.   People with O-negative blood are known as “universal donors” because their blood can be transfused into anyone.  It is found in just six percent of the population, and is often transfused to patients in emergency rooms and trauma situations when there is no time for blood typing. 


Please donate!


Weber Middle School's Blood Drive will be located in the All-Purpose Room. Please reserve your donation time by copying the address below to do so electronically:
