Robbins Lane Elementary will be holding an emergency blood drive Tuesday to help the New York Blood Center.
The drive, held in the school cafeteria from 3:15-9:15 p.m. Tuesday, was set up in response to a large amount of cancelled donations in Sandy's wake.
"New York Blood Center has lost approximately 6,000 units of blood due to cancellations as a result of Hurricane Sandy," explained a flier for the drive.
To be eligible to donate in this drive, a donor:
- Must have a valid ID.
- Must weigh at least 110 pounds.
- Must be 16-76 years old.
- Can not have gotten any tattoos in the past 12 months.
Walk-ins will be welcome.
