Blood donations are needed every single day and here is your next chance to donate.

A Blood and Platelet Drive is being held on Saturday, October 5th from 9:00 AM to 2:30 PM at the RWJ Barnabas Health Arena located at 1245 Old Freehold Road in Toms River.

If you have any questions regarding eligibility requirements, call a RWJ Donor Services staff person at (732) 235-8100 ext. 248.

There will be gift card and raffle giveaways for all donors!

Appointments are definitely encouraged. I have tried to attend these blood drives without one and it did not go well.

Remember that one donation can save MULTIPLE lives.

Go Donate. That is all.
