Blood Drive... a PS276 Parent needs your help

A PS 276 parent is organizing a blood drive in March with NY Blood Center at Stuyvesant High School.  The blood centers are in low supply and this parent depends on receiving two units of blood every 14 days due to her genetic blood disease she was born with and diagnosed at 2 years old, Thalassemia. NY Blood Center cannot confirm a date with her unless she gives them a commitment of 30 signatures so they won't lose money. It is a huge undertaking for NY Blood Center - staff, phlebotomists, equipment, beds, etc. 

Let's help this fellow parent hold a successful blood drive on a wonderful Saturday in March at Stuy High School. Once she has 30 signatures a date will be confirmed for a Saturday in March and flyers will be posted in the school with all the details. 
Please email Susan Townes to put your name on the list!
