Suffern Middle School’s Youth Against Cancer (YAC) Club is hosting a blood and bone marrow drive in honor of sixth-grader Danny van Schaik on Thursday, May 23 from 4:30pm-9:00pm at Suffern Middle School.
Out of gratitude to the many blood donors whose generous, voluntary and anonymous donations since his battle with leukemia began last June, Danny and his family are teaming up with the SMS YAC Club to “pay it forward” with a community drive to help others in need.
Over the past several weeks, YAC Club members have been busy recruiting eligible donors and local residents are encouraged to participate.
All donors are advised to bring a photo or signature I.D and should arrive well-hydrated with a full stomach. For information on who may give blood, click here to visit the New York Blood Center's eligibility page.
The SMS YAC Club has raised more than $20,000 for cancer research and support organizations since it was founded in the fall of 2011.
