“I hadn’t donated blood since 2001 because I hate needles, I’ve been known to faint at the sight of blood, and my blood pressure is notoriously low,” said Rubin. “Blood donations have plummeted during the pandemic, and the need is great. If you are able to donate blood, please make an appointment to do so.”
