The annual Somers Women's Club Blood Drive will be held on Saturday, March 10, 2018 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm at Somers Intermediate School, 240 Route 202, Somers, NY. The drive does not cancel due to bad weather. 

This blood drive for the New York Center, Hudson Valley Region benefits 20 hospitals in our local area, and donations may also be distributed to any of the 200 hospitals between eastern Long Island and Albany, depending on need.

This drive is collecting whole blood and Double Red Cells using the ALYX machine. The waiting period between donations is 56 days for whole blood and 112 days for double red cell donations. A picture or signature ID is required for registration on the day of giving. Questions about eligibility to donate can be directed to 800-688-0900. 

The chair for this year’s drive is Jodi Hu. Volunteers from the Somers Women's Club will be telephoning past donors to remind them of this year's date, and to try to schedule specific times for donors to minimize waiting time. Donations may also be scheduled online at drm.nybloodcenter.org and enter group code 11191 or by calling 800-933-2566. For any other questions, please email swc@somerswomensclub.com.
