In an effort to ensure a stable blood supply for our region during this critical time, Central Jersey Blood Center is offering a free Fourth of July donor-themed T-Shirt (while supplies last) and 300-point bonus to our Rewards for Life Program for every donor who gives blood from July 1 – 6, 2014 at one of our three donor centers in Shrewsbury, Howell or Toms River.

 UNDERSTANDING THE NEED FOR ONGOING BLOOD DONATION

Each year, 4.5 million Americans would die without blood transfusions. Every two seconds, someone needs blood and car accident victims can require red blood cell transfusions of 50 units or more. Children being treated for cancer, premature infants and children having heart surgery need blood and platelets from donors of all types. Some patients with complications from severe sickle cell disease receive blood transfusions every month — up to four units at a time. A patient could also be forced to pass up a lifesaving organ if enough compatible blood is not available to support the transplant.

If people gave blood just one more time each year, shortages would be prevented.
