NYBC honors the lives lost on 9/11 and the many dedicated donors who gave the gift of life immediately following the terrorist attacks -- and each and every day since.
Visitors to Center East notice the three brass footprints in the sidewalk, and the plaque which reads:
and in celebration of the spirit of community,
may these footprints forever honor
the many volunteers who tirelessly waited
in person and in spirit
to give of themselves in response to the needs
of the victims of September 11, 2001.
This plaque goes on to remind us that NYBC and its selfless donors are front and center, not only during times of crisis, but at ALL times:
And let them serve as a symbol of our selfless volunteers
who donate blood every day of the year
on behalf of our entire community.
