Donate Blood and Receive Free Movie Tickets 

Anyone who successfully donates whole blood or platelets at Community Blood Services’ Paramus center on Friday or Saturday, August 18th or 19th, or at the Lincoln Park or Goshen centers on Saturday, August 19th, will receive a pair of free movie tickets.

August is traditionally the month when the blood supply is at its lowest because people are on vacation and fewer blood drives are organized by schools, community groups and corporations. The metropolitan area is currently facing a critical blood shortage, with all blood types needed, particularly O negative.

Community Blood Services is a not-for-profit organization that provides blood and blood products to 37 hospitals in Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Morris, and Passaic counties in New Jersey, as well as in New York City and Orange and Rockland counties in southern New York State.

The Paramus center, located at 970 Linwood Avenue West, is open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Lincoln Park center, located at 63 Beaver Brook Road, is open on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Goshen center, located at 7 Coates Drive, Suite 5, is open on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

To make an appointment to donate blood at our New Jersey locations, please call (201)251-3703. For appointments at our Goshen donor center, please call (845)294-3362. Walk-ins are also welcome. An appointment is needed to donate platelets.
