Shortage of Blood at the Jersey Shore – Can You Help?
The Central Jersey Blood Center needs you! Please donate blood.
Alyssa Drown, the marketing manager of Central Jersey Blood Center,
"Right now we are facing a frightening shortage of something that only people can supply. Our local and national blood supplies are dangerously low. No substitution exists for human blood; it cannot be manufactured."
All blood types are needed, especially negative-type red cells A-, B-, O-, and all-type platelet donations.
There are three blood donation centers in our area, Howell, Toms River, and Shrewsbury or at a mobile drive near you.
Toms River Donation Center: 1256 Indian Head Road & Rt. 9, Indian Head Shopping Center
Howell Donation Center: 4068 Rt. 9 South, Howell Plaza Shopping Center
Shrewsbury Donation Center: 494 Sycamore Avenue
