Red Cross Blood Drive

The New Rochelle Public Library will host an American Red Cross Blood Drive on Tuesday, Oct. 13 from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the library’s meeting room and theater stage.

The American Red Cross Blood Services depends on committed donors to give the “gift of life” to help ensure that quality blood products and services are always available when and where they are needed by hospital patients. One unit of blood can help save the lives of up to three people. The Red Cross needs donors to keep giving blood during all times of the year if it is to continue meeting patients’ need for blood: transfusions for trauma victims who have experienced accidents or burns; patients undergoing heart surgery or organ transplants; and patients receiving treatment for leukemia, cancer and other diseases. A donation will help ensure that blood is available for those many patients who require this life-saving gift.

Donors need to be at least 17 years of age. Donors may drop-in or register by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS, or by visiting redcrossblood.org. Donors should bring a photo I.D. and allow for an hour to complete the donation. Refreshments will be provided.

Seminar for Special Needs Trusts

A special needs trust can be established by families who are the primary caregivers of a child with disabilities.

Therefore, they can possibly receive existing government benefits and assets set aside in the trust for additional expenses. Presented by Calderone Financial Services.
