Blood and Bone Marrow Registry Drive

Come and donate blood or register as a bone marrow donor! 

We are asking any & everyone do their part, roll up their sleeves & donate blood to support our local hospitals blood supply!  Community Blood Services has “OUTSTANDING” orders from their local hospitals’ due to extremely a high blood shortage. 

Currently, Community Blood Services is at approximately a “1” day supply of blood & blood products left on the shelves! Community Blood Services only supplies “local” hospitals in New Jersey & New York. These hospitals have several patients continually needing blood/blood products for the following: Open Heart Surgery, Trauma patients, Leukemia, burn victims, automobile accident victims & more!  A  blood drive just ran 2 weeks ago & all 68 pints that were collected were gone in 2 days!  

We are reaching out to ANY & EVERYONE to ask for their help with a blood donation. 

Our blood drive will be held on Wednesday, 11/15/2017 between the hours of 10:00am – 3:30pm Outside of the Ciccone Theatre (Register Inside the Student Center first!!!)

- All donors will receive free health screenings including: Iron, Cholesterol, Blood Pressure, Temperature, Hemoglobin, Pulse Rate & Blood Type.

- Free juice/cookies/crackers/pretzels for all blood donors

Please help out during this time of need!

All students must present an ID before donating blood. 

Volunteers are also needed throughout the day to help run the event, if you'e interested or have any questions please email kswami@me.bergen.edu
