New York Hospital Queens, in partnership with the New York Cosmos, will host a blood drive at the hospital’s Blood Donor Center, from Monday, September 30 to Friday, October 4.
The Cosmos who have continued their ongoing relationship with the community with their Back to School Clinics and a visit to the New York Hospital Queens earlier this year, will now help their partners in getting their fans to donate the gift of life.
The unit of whole blood that you so generously give will supply oxygen-carrying red cells to an anemic cancer patient, essential clotting factors to a hemophiliac and immunity-conferring proteins to a patient fighting severe infection.
The first 100 donors to mention “New York Cosmos” will receive a pair of tickets to the Cosmos’ soccer game on October 20, and will be entered to win an autographed soccer ball. To pledge, go to www.nyhq.org/Blood_Donor_Center or call (718) 670-1007.
