Saint Clare’s Health System has teamed up with the American Red Cross to host a blood drive to increase the blood supply in our community. The Red Cross has an emergency need for blood, and all blood types are needed.
Thursday, January 31, 2013
9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Saint Clare’s Hospital/Denville, Urban Auditorium
25 Pocono Road, Denville, NJ
To register for the blood drive at Saint Clare’s, please call (866) 782-5273.
If you have additional questions about eligibility, you may also call the American Red Cross Donor Client Center: (866) 236-3276. Donor Client services will answer questions in regards to eligibility and post donation information.
“Saint Clare’s is pleased to support blood drives which offer life-saving support to our community,” said Leslie D. Hirsch, president and chief executive officer at Saint Clare’s Health System. “As a hospital, we offer advanced technology and care, but without the community’s support of blood drives, we would not have access to an important resource in recovery for many patients.”
Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental permission in New Jersey), meet weight and height requirements (110 pounds or more, depending on their height) and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. Please bring your Red Cross blood donor card or other form of positive ID when you come to donate.
