​Save the Date for the MedRite Urgent Care Center’s Sponsored Blood Drive! December 15, 2014

Midtown East, Manhattan
​Save the Date for the MedRite Urgent Care Center’s Sponsored Blood Drive!, Manhattan, New York

As the Red Cross will tell you, when it comes to donating blood, “the need is constant and the gratification is instant.” With the holiday season in full swing, there’s no better time to do a good deed and help out your fellow man by donating blood. This Monday, December 15th, the MedRite Urgent Care Center will be sponsoring a blood drive, taking place on 380 Second Avenue between the hours of 2 PM – 7 PM.

The American Red Cross is the largest sole supplier of blood products in the country, distributing around 40 percent of the blood supply to over 2,500 hospitals and blood transfusion centers across the nation. If you ask anyone at this life-saving organization, they will tell you, “you don’t need a special reason to give blood.” But if you are curious about the benefits, take a look at the list below.

  • Potentially reduce your risk of heart attack – when you donate blood you remove over 200 milligrams of iron, which is known to harden the arteries. Getting it out of your system can actually stave off heart disease
  • 100% free mini physical – In order to qualify for donating, you need to get a brief check-up, which allows you to save money and get an update on your health at the same time.
  • Help Save a Life Given that donations cost you nothing and take up very little of your time, there’s really no easier way to make a huge impact on another person’s life.

If you are or someone you know is a veteran when it comes to donating, or looking to give it a go for the first time, this Monday, December 15th is your chance to do just that! Make this holiday season memorable by taking part in this humanitarian cause and saving a life!
