Types of Donations

The need for blood is a constant one throughout the world—and right here at home in New Jersey! The Central Jersey Blood Center works continuously to ensure a full supply of blood is always available for those who are in dire need of a blood transfusion. All three of our blood centers serve local hospitals to help treat premature babies, trauma victims, cancer patients, and others that need life-saving blood. At our blood centers, we not only care about your donation—we care about you! We’ll go the extra mile to ensure that you are relaxed during the entire physical examination and blood draw process. From skilled, compassionate phlebotomists to other perks like free Internet usage, you can feel good when you give blood.
