Press Release Photo

JAMESTOWN, NY (Tuesday, February 23, 2016 )—Photo press release: The Community Blood Bank (CBB) of Western New York and Northwest Pennsylvania will hold a community blood drive during WCA Hospital’s MEET OUR ROBOT, Monday, February 29, from 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. In photograph, WCA Hospital respiratory therapy staff, Jennifer Wendell, Rebecca Kubera, and Elissa Reynolds, donate blood at the CBB blood drive held last month at WCA. “One in seven people entering the hospital needs blood,” said Kathy Hastings, regional mobile drive coordinator. “Blood is always needed. More than 15 million pints of blood are transfused in the United States each year. The Community Blood Bank supplies approximately 98 percent of all the blood needed at WCA Hospital. By donating just one pint of blood, a donor can save up to three lives. The hospital’s event is the perfect opportunity for the public to stop by our mobile bloodmobile drive at the hospital and give this precious gift of life.” For more information on WCA’s MEET OUR ROBOT community event, go to wcahospital.org or call WCA Hospital (716) 664-8614.
