Brooklyn WATE's 1st 
Blood Drive

Our  Very 1st Blood Drive 

Saturday Nov 4th-Saturday Nov 11th, 2023

The New York Blood Center  is partnering with Brooklyn WATE to actively have more Black and Brown people donate blood in this season of giving. Did you know that people with the same ancestral heritage are more likely to have the same blood groups?  Patients need to be closely matched with blood from donors with the same ancestral heritage to reduce the chance of complications.

We need 30,000 Black donors to give every year to meet the demand. Please tell your family and friends. We really need your support. We'll be there to cheer you on Saturday, November 4th, 10am-2pm! 


We thank you in advance. Can't make it on Saturday choose a day that works for you and register. (Click Picture)
