Community Blood Services has an urgent need for blood donations

Following several rounds of severe winter weather in many parts of the country, that affects everyone, Community Blood Services is urging eligible blood and platelet donors to help restock its shelves to overcome a shortage.

In an effort to meet those needs, Community Blood Services offers many different donation programs and services, including our automated collection program which targets specific blood products and blood types needed by our patients You can donate at one of our convenient locations or organize a drive at your place of business, place of worship, school, organization, or even on one of our bloodmobiles. It’s an opportunity to make a real difference in someone’s life.

Did you know it takes 250 blood donations every day and many volunteer blood donors to meet the needs of all the patients in the more than 30 hospitals serviced by Community Blood Services throughout New Jersey and New York? And a single blood donation can help save up to three lives!

Giving blood at one of our many donation sites or on a mobile blood drive is convenient and easy. Our highly trained, courteous employees strive to make your blood donation a positive experience.

On the day of your donation you can save time by completing your health history questionnaire in the privacy of your home, school or office by using our DonorExpress. DonorExpress will help you start the process even before leaving for the blood drive or donor center!

Visit wwwcommunitybloodservices.org for more information or schedule your donation by calling 201-251-3703.

Thanks for your continued support!
