RAHWAY — The Rahway Elks Lodge #1075 is sponsoring a blood drive on Saturday, Sept. 10. This event will take place in the Lodge Grill Room, which is located at 122 West Milton Avenue in Rahway.
Representatives from The Blood Center of New Jersey will be available from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. All donors will receive a free cholesterol screening.
Every 2.5 seconds someone in America needs blood: a friend, a family member, or maybe even you. This blood drive is held at a time during the year when blood supplies are at low levels due to a decrease in donations and an increased demand for blood. This is the time of year when people who were busy with summer activities and vacations tend to forget about donating.
Generally, people in good health are eligible to donate. Blood donors must be 16 years of age or older. There are no upper age limits provided all health requirements are met. Volunteer blood donors must bring a photo form of identification. For more detailed questions or concerns, call the Blood Center of New Jersey donor services department at 1-800-652-5663, ext. 132 or 198.
