As the need for blood increases, the pool of donors has not. 60 percent of Americans are eligible blood donors but only 5 percent donate annually. Last year, blood donations to Long Island Blood Services increased by 12 percent, but that is not enough to keep up with demand. Your donation will help to save lives. Our community hospitals need your help. Please share this lifesaving gift!
