Blood Donor Drive at LBI Library April 25

Apr 16, 2018

The Long Beach Island branch of the Ocean County Library in Surf City hosts a blood drive in partnership with the Jersey Coast American Red Cross chapter on Wednesday, April 25, from 2 to 7 p.m., in the meeting room.

According to the chapter, prospective blood donors must be in good health, be at least 17 years of age and weigh at least 110 pounds. Prior to the donation, they will be asked questions about their medical history, and also have temperature, pulse and blood pressure checked.

The actual donation takes between eight to 10 minutes. When approximately one pint has been collected, a staff person will place a bandage on the donor’s arm. Following the donation, free refreshments will be available.

All donors will automatically be entered in a sweepstakes to win one of three $1,000 gift cards to The Home Depot courtesy of Suburban Propane.

For more information and to schedule an appointment, call the branch at 609-597-3381. Walk-ins are welcome. E.E.
