The New York Blood Center, which services New Jersey communities, urges individuals who feel healthy and meet the eligibility criteria to make an appointment and donate so blood is available for patients who need it. Information on scheduling a blood donation is available online here, or by calling 1-800-933-BLOOD (2566). Extra precautions are being taken at all collection sites due to COVID-19.
New York Blood Center can also arrange for blood collection for an individual or yourself. Arrangements for this service can be made through their Special Collections department at 516-478-5140. Blood donation drives and centers are also available in your local communities.
