We've documented several ways that Queens residents are trying to help their neighbors in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Already, the outpouring of support on the part of the borough's millions of residents has been overwhelming.
Between volunteering and donations, there have been a lot of opportunities to give back in the week since the storm hit.
On Monday in Flushing, residents will get another chance, with a blood drive from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Flushing Armory, located at 137-58 Northern Blvd.
The Greater New York Blood Center will be trying to replace more than 6,000 units of blood lost out after Hurricane Sandy forced the cancellation of events all over the city, according to Queens Borough President Helen Marshall.
For more information, donors can call the blood center at 1-800-688-0900 or go to www.nybloodcenter.org.
