BSGE Donates a Record 39 Pints of Blood

BSGE held its annual Blood Drive in conjunction with the New York Blood Center on February 16th.

The BSGE community contributed a school record 39 pints of blood.  The blood is separated into its component parts and distributed around the New York area to patients and hospitals.

Though many in our community were enthusiastic to donate, the Blood Center has strict criteria for donation.  Prospective donors can be disqualified if they are under 16 years of age (the majority of BSGE students), don’t meet certain height weight requirements, are ill, on certain medications, among other restrictions.  See nybloodcenter.org for more information.
