East Brunswick residents asked to give the gift of life

February 25, 2017 by  

Donating blood can save lives, and the public from East Brunswick and the surrounding communities are asked to be generous and make a contribution next month.

The East Brunswick Jewish Center will be hosting a blood drive. Each person who is interested in participating is asked to bring along a form of ID that shows their photo and date of birth. Anyone between the ages of 17 to 75 and who meets the criteria is able to donate, while those under 16 can do so provided they have the signed permission of their parents. Anyone over 75 can contribute so long as they have a signed note from their doctor indicating that doing so will not have an adverse effect on their health. Donors must be at least 110lb in weight, and be able to meet the other requirements.

Those who would like to donate blood are reminded to eat before they do so, and if they have a donor card, they are asked to bring it along. The organizers of an event such as this can use the services of a printer to provide them with business forms and other materials that can help them to keep it well organized and running smoothly.

The drive will be held on March 5 at 511 Ryders Lane in East Brunswick. It will run from 8:30 am until 2:30 pm. Anyone who would like to book a time or find out more is asked to call 1-800-933-2566.
