Roosevelt Field Mall

The Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City provided the perfect venue for a successful Blood Drive!  The staff was fantastic, the mall employees were accommodating, and the space was comfortable for the donors.  The drive collected 82 pints which breaks the previous record set in July , 2020 of 73!  Thank you, again, to our steadfast donors and all who make the blood drives possible.

December 2020

Despite a rainy day, a busy time of year, a last-minute change of location and a global pandemic, the seventh “Bobby Menges “I’m Not Done Yet” Memorial Blood Drive at the Roosevelt Field Mall on 12/14 was a big success!  The drive collected 67 pints of blood which will go towards helping over 200 people, including cancer patients, accident victims, and trauma patients   Read more

The traditional drive held at the Menges home with the bloodmobile was not possible because of the pandemic, so a bigger location was needed.  John Parks, owner of the beautiful and newly renovated Stewart Manor County Club, generously offered his space, and thanks to him, the blood drive was better than ever.  The NY Blood Center ran an organized, efficient, and safe event; masks were worn, and social distancing was practiced throughout.   Also, a big shout-out to Kenny at Bagel Man who donated bagels for the staff and donors.
