NYPD Recruits Recognized for Giving Gift of Life
Date:12/13/2008

NEW YORK, Dec. 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- New York Blood Center (NYBC) will honor New York's finest this Monday, December 15 at 12:00 PM, for years of dedication on behalf of thousands of New York Police Department (NYPD) Academy recruits for donating blood and saving lives. To date, more than 100 blood drives have been held by the Police Academy since 1980, in conjunction with New York Blood Center.

A special "Perpetual Plaque" will be presented to the NYPD Academy in the midst of its latest blood drive effort, to be held between the hours of 7:30 AM and 11:00 PM at 235 East 20th Street in the Police Academy's main gym. More than 360 blood donations are expected from NYPD recruits.

The plaque will commemorate the blood donations of each NYPD Academy class of recruits, and will be updated by each subsequent graduating class. Blood donations will be recorded by percentage of the class, and by total number of blood donations.

NYBC thanks every individual blood donor and the wide variety of organizations that sponsor blood drives throughout the busy and often distracting holiday season.

With the winter holidays only days away, NYBC calls upon the community to please set aside a time to donate blood. Winter is a time when blood supply decreases while emergency needs remain the same. The holidays are also a time when it becomes more difficult to find precise blood matches for those that are very sick, including patients with blood cancers or rare anemias who are dependent upon transfusions of donated blood and platelets to stay alive. January is National Blood Donor Month.

                        To donate blood, please call:
                          Toll Free:  1-800-933-2566
                        Visit:  www.nybloodcenter.org

All donors receive free mini-medical exams on site including information about their temperature, pulse rate, blood pressure and hemoglobin level. Eligible donors include those people at least age 16 with parental consent (in NY) or 17 (in NJ), who weigh a minimum of 110 pounds, are in good health and meet all Food & Drug Administration and NY or NJ State Department of Health donor criteria. Inquiries are also welcomed from organizations who would like to schedule a blood drive.

New York Blood Center (NYBC) is one of the nation's largest non-profit, community-based blood centers. NYBC has been providing blood, transfusion products and services to patients in greater New York since 1964. NYBC is also home to the Lindsley F.
