Give a Pint, Get a Pound When You Donate Blood at Community Blood Services

September 27 & 28


Receive a complimentary one pound bag of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee when you donate blood or platelets on Monday or Tuesday, Sept. 27 or 28, at one of Community Blood Services’ New Jersey or New York donor centers.

“Every 2.5 seconds someone needs blood…it could be a friend, a family member or maybe even you,” says Garrett Allen, call center manager.

Allen said all blood types are needed, especially O negative, A negative and B negative, in order to meet the needs of patients at area hospitals, and platelets are needed to treat patients diagnosed with cancer or other blood disorders. Currently, there is less than a day’s supply of blood on the shelves, he said.

In New Jersey, donors can donate at the Paramus Donor Center, 970 Linwood Avenue West, Paramus, on Monday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or Tuesday, 12 noon to 7:30 p.m., or at Lincoln Park, 63 Beaverbrook Road, Suite 304, on Tuesday from 1 to 6:30 p.m. They can also donate on Tuesday from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. on the bloodmobile parked near the emergency room at Englewood Hospital, 350 Engle Street.

New York donors can donate at the Warwick center, 20 Grand Street near the Mount Alverno Center, on Monday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. or at the New Windsor center, 63 Beaverbrook Road, Suite 304, on Tuesday from 1 to 6:30 p.m.

For more information, or to make an appointment to donate, visit www.communitybloodservices.com or call toll free 866-228-1500. Walk-ins are also welcome but an appointment is needed to donate platelets.

Whole blood donors must be 17-75 years old (16 years old with parental permission) and weigh at least 110 pounds. Donors also receive complimentary health screenings, including cholesterol and glucose.

Community Blood Services, a not-for-profit organization provides blood and blood products for patients in more than 30 hospitals in New Jersey and New York State.
