Alumni in New York City Area Doing What They Can to Help

Dave Aiello wrote, "In the course of contacting the alumni who were supposed to attend the NYC Phonathon yesterday afternoon, I found out that Mark Haies '58 had already gone to donate blood. Many of us have subsequently donated blood or are planning to donate blood today."

"If you want to help, you can simply go to a hospital or a regional blood center. Be prepared to wait in line for a long time, since many other people will be there. You can also call the American National Red Cross Blood Donation Program at 800-GIVE-LIFE or 800-448-3543 for more information. The Red Cross' Web Site has been overloaded since the disaster occured, but the blood donation information page is located at:"
