Any volunteer blood, platelet or plasma donor who donates at a Community Blood Services donor center in New Jersey or New York during National Volunteer Appreciation Week from Sunday, April 15 through Saturday, April 21 will be entered into a raffle for a 32” TV.

“Our volunteer donors help save lives in their community every time they make a donation,” said Karen Ferriday, community affairs director for the blood center. “Their legacy of caring deserves to be recognized and celebrated.”

The winner of the 32” flat screen HD LCD TV will be selected on April 24. The winning donor will be informed soon afterward and can pick up the TV at his or her local donor center.
