TOMORROW: Blood Drive At McCarren Park

belaThis item comes courtesy of Kate of Jauntsetter. She writes:

I’m writing from, a travel website targeted at New York women (and men, really), based out of Brooklyn. We’re having a blood drive this Friday in McCarren Park to help out the NYC Blood Bank – the summer months are their slowest in terms of donors, and just one donor can save up to three lives…

Here’s the 411:

This event kicks off at the corner of Bedford Avenue and North 12 Street at 4:00 p.m. and will run until 9:30 p.m. The first 75 donors will get “free goodies” including:

  1. Jauntsetter tote bags
  2. Discounts from Greenpoint’s very own Hayden-Harnett
  3. Cupcakes from Tawny Ong
  4. Snacks from The Bagel Store

Those of you who are jonesing for a free ice cream cone (and who isn’t in this weather?) should make it a point to get there bright and early: the first 25 donors will get a coupon for a free scoop at the Van Leeuwen Ice Cream truck. Interested donors can make a date to donate blood at this event by clicking here. Check it out!

  2. I’ve been meaning to do this when the truck is at Bedford and 7th, but could never get it together. Made my appointment this time! Free stuff, yay!
