The Community Needs You!

Critical Need For Blood Donations.

There is nothing worse than having to wait for something that you really need. It is unrealistic to ask a premature baby, trauma victim, or a patient about to undergo surgery at a local hospital to wait for their local blood center to have the necessary blood products in place to support them in a time of need. This is why the Central Jersey Blood Center needs your help.

Heading into the Labor Day weekend, the last thing New Jersey residents tend to be thinking about is getting into the donor centers to donate blood. Families are heading out on end of summer vacations and busy preparing their children for the new school year. So it is at this time of year we need you more than ever.

News of the hurricane, now superstorm Harvey, in Texas only makes matters worse. The flooding and dangerous conditions in Texas are halting blood collections in the affected areas. CJBC is at risk of not getting key imports into our blood bank to provide for local patients. Blood collection agencies throughout the US are making every effort to meet the emergency blood needs of patients and ensure there is a sufficient blood supply in the affected areas, but we can’t do it without your help.

To maintain a safe supply of blood, a seven-day inventory must be replenished. All blood types are desired but O- blood donations are in the highest demand. O- donors are universal donors and are the most frequently used in a trauma situations or emergencies. Negative blood types are also at a low, with less than a two-day supply.
