Madison Area YMCA Saves 150 Lives with Blood Drive

MADISON — Over 40 blood donors came out to support the Madison Area YMCA community blood drive with their lifesaving blood. One unit of blood can help up to 3 different patients so 150 lives will be impacted by this blood drive. The blood supply is at a dangerously low level due to Covid-19 and New Jersey Blood Services is desperately seeking large venues where blood drives can be held while maintaining social distancing. The blood center is unable to run bus drives so it is imperative these sites are found so donors can find a donation location. New Jersey Blood Services (NJBS) reports that last summer over 1500 units of blood were donated on bus mobile drives that cannot run this summer to safely social distance.

If you would like to help save lives by finding a location and assisting in recruiting blood donors please reach out to SLynch@nybc.org. If you would like to donate blood, sign up by clicking here.

Extra precautions are being taken to help prevent the person-to-person spread of COVID-19. As always, people are not eligible to donate if they’re experiencing a cold, sore throat, respiratory infection, or flu-like symptoms. Additional information on donor eligibility and COVID-19 precautions is available by clicking here.
