Buffalo, New York (September 4, 2014) – On Thursday, June 26, 2014, William Mattar Law Offices will host a Unyts blood drive at the firm’s offices at 6720 Main Street in Williamsville. The community is invited to donate blood between 10am and 2pm.
Blood is a critical resource for community health. In the United States, someone needs a transfusion every two seconds. Just one car accident victim can need up to 100 pints of blood. Community support is vital to helping Unyts to meet this demand.
Founded in 1981, Unyts was the first organization of its kind to handle blood donation in addition to organ, tissue, and eye procurement services. Unyts is one of the top procurement organizations in the United States because when approached about organ donation of a loved one, 90% of people in the region agree. This is significantly higher than the national average of 60%. Unyt’s blood banking services ensures that Western New York donations remain local.
