Winter 2018 Blood Donation Drive: Central Jersey Blood Center · New Jersey Blood Services · Red Cross New Jersey Region · Donor App

The need for blood is a constant one throughout the world—and right here at home in New Jersey! The Central Jersey Blood Center works continuously to ensure a full supply of blood is always available for those who are in dire need of a blood transfusion. All three of our blood centers serve local hospitals to help treat premature babies, trauma victims, cancer patients, and others that need life-saving blood.

At our blood centers, we not only care about your donation — we care about you! We’ll go the extra mile to ensure that you are relaxed during the entire physical examination and blood draw process. From skilled, compassionate phlebotomists to other perks like free Internet usage, you can feel good when you give blood.

You must be at least 17 years old to donate to the general blood supply, or 16 years old with parental/guardian consent, if allowed by state law. There is no upper age limit for blood donation as long as you are well with no restrictions or limitations to your activities.

Give the gift of blood and receive an Amazon.com Gift Card via email. Schedule a donation from through 12/19 — Restrictions apply.
