The Knights of Columbus Joseph F Lamb Council will be holding a Blood Drive on Friday, February2nd from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Saint Thomas the Apostle Church 5635 Berkshire Valley Road. Oak Ridge, New Jersey 07438.
Donating blood is a simple, selfless gift of life that helps ensure a sustained and secure blood supply for all people. While most people expect blood to be available if they should ever need it, only a fraction of those who can give blood really do.
Most adults can give blood according to general guidelines for donation, a person must be in good general health, be at least 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and not have donated blood in the last 56 days. Prior to donating blood, each donor will undergo a brief examination to measure temperature, blood pressure and red blood cell count.
Blood is always needed and it is important for those who can donate to do so.
For more information on donating blood during the blood drive, please call George at 973-715-3622.
