The blood drive will honor former members:

  • Walt Pinches, a police captain who was an active member for more than 30 years;
  • Rabbi Stanley Fisch, who also served as chaplain;
  • and Bill Shambroom, a WWII Navy combat veteran who joined TVAC at age 64.

“These three members had made huge contributions to the Corps,” said David Barach, TVAC member and chairman of the blood drive committee. “We thought the blood drive was a great way to honor their memory and get the public involved to help save other people’s lives.”

All three former members were life members meaning they had 10 years of service and were voted on by the membership for such a title.

The blood drive will be held from 3 to 8 p.m. at the Teaneck Volunteer Ambulance Corps, 855 Windsor Road. Refreshments will be provided courtesy of TVAC’s longtime supporters Chopstix Kosher Take-Out and Butterflake Bakery.

Walk-ins are welcome. Donors must weigh at least 110 pounds, eat before donation and bring ID.
