Blood Drive and Gift of Life Event at Congregation Orach Chaim

  Last modified on August 6th, 2021

One of our readers, David Bauman, is organizing two events to save lives this month. The events will run simultaneously on Wednesday, August 18 from 1-7pm at Congregation Orach Chaim, located at 1459 Lexington Avenue between 94th and 95th Streets.

First, a blood drive is being organized due to a national shortage. One donor can save up to three lives.

Second, a ‘Gift of Life’ event is being organized for someone named Steve who is in need of a bone marrow transplant. Bauman describes him as someone who “plays a huge role in his community and his best chance of finding a match is someone of European descent.” Bone marrow donors will be recruited based off cheek swabs, with matches then added to a registry.
