Dunkirk Community Blood Drive for Unyts

The City of Dunkirk is teaming up with Unyts to ensure that blood products are available for patients in need this summer. The demand for blood tends to outpace supply during the summer season, but the community of Dunkirk has an opportunity to change that trend at an upcoming Unyts blood drive sponsored by Mark Mathews of the Dunkirk Police Department.

On Thursday, Aug. 15, the blood drive will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Dunkirk Fire Station No. 4, 104 W. Doughty St., Dunkirk. All presenting donors will receive a free t-shirt.

Detective for the Dunkirk Police Department, Mark Mathews said “Being in law enforcement, I help protect my community every day. Hosting a community blood drives help me to ensure that my community is prepared and has a life-saving blood supply for neighbors in need.”

To schedule an appointment to donate blood, contact Unyts at 529-4270, or sign up online at www.unytsblooddonor.org. Walk-ins always welcome!

As of January 1, 2012, Unyts operates under, d/b/a Unyts, WNY’s only Organ, Eye, Tissue and Community Blood Center. The organization is no longer Upstate NY Transplant Services.
