New York's Catholic Archdiocese Hosting June 2 Blood Drive
Date:5/30/2008

Long Tradition of Support for New York Blood Center (NYBC)

NEW YORK, May 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The New York Catholic Center is hosting a blood drive on Monday, June 2 at 1011 First Avenue, New York, NY 10022 in the Cathedral High School Gymnasium. Hours are from 9:30am-3:00pm

The Archdiocese of New York has long supported the efforts of New York Blood Center; His Eminence Edward Cardinal Egan serves as New York Blood Center (NYBC)'s Volunteer Religious Chair.

During the Archdiocese's Bicentennial year, from April 1, 2007 to April 30, 2008, more than 11,500 blood donations were made at blood drives sponsor at Archdiocese parishes -- an eight percent increase in Archdiocese of New York donations.

Every day in the United States, approximately 39,000 units of blood are required in hospitals and emergency treatment facilities to treat patients with cancer and other diseases, to support organ transplant recipients, and to help save the lives of accident and trauma victims. In New York, NYBC supplies approximately 2,000 units of blood and blood products daily to more than 200 area hospitals.

Nationwide, 60 percent of our population is eligible to donate blood, yet only five percent actually give. Here in New York, that number is even lower - two percent of the eligible population are blood donors. Every three seconds, someone in this country needs blood.

Questions about donating blood can be directed to the New York Blood Center at (800) 688-0900 or the NYBC website: HYPERLINK "../../../Enquiry/5-30-2008/1/www.nybloodcenter.org" http://www.nybloodcenter.org.
