ROCKLAND COUNTY, N.Y. --  Members of the community are being encouraged to roll up their sleeves and take a minute to donate blood to help those in need on Wednesday, which is Flag Dag and World Blood Donor Day.

The blood drive organized by county employees will be held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Rockland Fire Training Center, 30 Firemen's Memorial Drive, Pomona.

"Giving your blood to save someone's life is a patriotic act and a perfect way to observe Flag Day," said Rockland County Executive Ed Day who is on the New York Blood Center's Volunteer Leadership Team

He will also take part in a ceremony earlier that day to honor eight of Rockland County's top blood donors.

"These residents who have given so generously of themselves so that others may live set an example for all of us," he said.

The blood drive will be run by the New York Blood Center, which serves hospitals in Rockland and throughout the region.

Walk-ins are welcome or call 1-800-933-2566 or www.nybloodcenter.org/blood .
