MONTVALE, N.J. – Give the gift of life, with assistance from Community Blood Services.
The Montvale-based organization will hold 49 community blood drives throughout November, in 10 different New Jersey counties.
The process is quick and no advance registration is required. All donors will receive a free cholesterol screening, and in addition, will be given access – exclusively on the day of their donation – to the online “Donor Express” health questionnaire, which helps to streamline the actual blood donation process.
“As we’ve moved into the fall, we continue to encourage residents to support the needs of their local hospitals,” says Robert Kessler, Community Blood Services’ recruitment director.
“Visiting one of our open drives is a perfect way to make a feel-good donation as the holidays approach.”
Healthy individuals age 16 or older, who weigh at least 110 pounds, may donate blood; 16 and 17-year-olds must have signed consent forms (available at www.communitybloodservices.com) and proof of birth date. Donors should eat a moderate meal prior to donating, and also bring identification showing their signature.
Full details and a county-by-county breakdown of events are available HERE.
