One Donation Saves Three Lives!
In recognition of National Blood Donation Month, OHI (Ocean Health Initiatives), a federally qualified health center, is sponsoring a Blood Drive at 101 Second Street, Lakewood, Tuesday, January 31, 2017, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. to benefit the Central Jersey Blood Center.
Donors must be healthy, at least 17 years old or be 16 with parental consent, weigh at least 120 pounds, and present a signature ID. Remember to eat and drink plenty of fluids before donating blood. Those with controlled high blood pressure, heart conditions, and diabetes can donate blood.
Appointments must be made in advance. To make an appointment or for more information, contact Carmen Lopez at 732-363-6655 Ext. 8363 or visit www.cjbcblood.org and click on “Donate Now.”
Since 1970, National Blood Donation Month in January reminds everyone that blood is needed all year, not just during disasters.
