A community-wide blood drive is scheduled for Sunday, November 2,

8:45 a.m.-2:15 p.m. at the Young Israel of New Hyde Park, located at 264-15 77th Avenue, just off Union Turnpike.

The drive is sponsored by six Eastern Queens and Nassau County synagogues: Bellerose Jewish Center, Marathon Jewish Center, Utopia Jewish Center, the Young Israel of New Hyde Park, the Young Israel of Hollis Hills/Windsor Park in Queens, and the Lake Success Jewish Center in Nassau County.

There is no substitute for blood, and people in need depend on community donors. People between 16 and 76 years of age, in good health, and who weigh at least 110 pounds may donate. Donors must bring identification that shows their signature and/or photo. People under 17 years of age must have written parental permission to donate. Donors will be served brunch, and free babysitting is available.

Although reservations are not necessary, if you wish to reserve a specific appointment time, please call Joseph Varon in the evening at 718-552-6449.
