Moe’s Southwest Grill Staten Island Hosts 9/11 Memorial Blood Drive on Sept. 4

Popular Fast-Casual Burrito Joint Partners with NY Blood Center;
Gives Away Free Entree to Blood Donors on September 4 

Staten Island, NY (August 19, 2013) – Moe’s Southwest Grill will once again honor 9/11 victims by partnering with New York Blood Center (NYBC) to host their annual blood drive at 2397 Hylan Blvd on Wednesday, September 4. When donors give a pint of blood, they will receive a free entrée from Moe’s.

Staten Island Borough President James P. Moinaro works with NYBC to organize drives among local businesses and community organizations; last year they set a goal to collectively raise 275 pints of blood in remembrance of the 275 Staten Islanders who lost their lives in the attacks against the U.S on September 11, 2001. The goal was far surpassed, with 668 donors giving a pint of ”life”, encouraging them to aim even higher this year.

“With the outpouring of support we received last year, I’m confident the community can come together to raise more than 700 pints,” said Moe’s Franchise Partner and local Staten Islander Joe McAllister. “It is a cause close to my, and much of Staten Island’s heart, and a great opportunity for me and the Moe’s team to help contribute and save lives while honoring those who lost theirs in 9/11.”

NY Blood Center will be at the Staten Island Moe’s Southwest Grill between 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. ET. Donors must be at least 16 years of age, weigh 110 pounds or more, bring photo identification and eat or drink something before donating. After donating one pint of blood, guests will receive a coupon to receive one free entrée from Moe’s – a burrito, stack, salad or quesadilla – to be used at any time.

For more information, guests may call 718-979-8226 or visit www.nybloodcenter.org.

About The Relay for Life

Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length. Relayers do not have to walk all night, but each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event.
