Eatontown EMS will host a community blood drive with the American Red Cross on Wednesday April 28th2021 from 1:00PM to 6:00PM at The Eatontown Community Center 72 Broad St, Eatontown, NJ 07724
"Hosting a blood drive coincides with Eatontown EMS core values of giving back to the community," said Thomas Notaro, Captain. "With a simple blood donation, we have the ability to help save the life of someone who could be a coworker, loved one or neighbor."
Blood is routinely transfused to patients with cancer and other diseases, premature babies, organ transplant recipients and trauma victims, according to the Red Cross.
"The short amount of time it takes to donate can mean a lifetime to a patient with a serious medical condition. We urge eligible donors to join us in the selfless act of giving blood."
Donors of all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, B negative and A negative. According to the Red Cross, type O negative is the universal blood type that can be safely transfused to anyone, and is often used to treat trauma patients.
There is no higher honor than saving a life, help save a life with us on April 28th.
