    Ahavas Chesed and Covid Plasma Initiative are partnering with the New York Blood Center (NYBC) and they need our help now! Join in this mitzvah and save up to 3 lives!

    The demand for blood and convalescent plasma is increasing due to the fight against COVID-19 not being over yet. Our brothers and sisters across the country are relying on the blood and plasma donations from our community. To help meet this demand, Ahavas Chesed will be sponsoring an appointment-only blood and plasma drive at the Jewish Children’s Museum!
