This past Tuesday, members of Arista and the Chessed Club joined together to arrange the 3rd Annual MTA Blood Drive.
Going into Tuesday, we had hoped to get close to 50 – an ambitious number – people to donate.  Throughout the day, many people –  MTA juniors and seniors, as well as YU college students, came to donate blood, as donating blood is a hugemitzvah. We would like to extend a hearty “thank you” to all those who participated.
We are proud to announce that at the end of the drive, we totaled 52 donors – exceeding our expectations! It is safe to say that this year’s blood drive was a major success. New York Blood Center tweeted this after our blood drive:
Looking forward, we plan on hosting more blood drives in the future, so stay tuned for another opportunity to perform this wonderful mitzvah.
