Whether you need someone to talk to, or groceries/medicine delivered or have a private pastoral matter to discuss, we are here for each other, even if we are not in the same room.

And you might even save a life." 

Healthy individuals are needed to step up and donate blood; it is vital for patients in need of life-saving blood transfusions!  The NYBC asks that you encourage colleagues, friends and the community to make an appointment donate blood if they are able.  Potential donors can:
