Donate Blood at Community Blood Services
& Get an Applebee’s Gift Card
March 5, 2015
Volunteer donors who donate blood or platelets at Community Blood Services’ new Parsippany donor center on Thursday, March 5 to help rebuild the hard-hit winter blood and platelet supply will receive a complimentary gift card to Applebee’s restaurant as a thank you for their lifesaving donations.
“One donation can save up to three lives,” says Karen Ferriday, director of community affairs at Community Blood Services. “We’re asking all eligible platelet and blood donors, particularly those with the universal blood type, Type O negative, to please give the gift of life.”
The Parsippany donor center, 1259 Route 46 East, Building #4, Suite 12 reopened last month. Donors are invited to donate on Monday, March 5 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. to get a gift card.
To make an appointment to donate, donors can call 201-251-3703 or schedule online at www.communitybloodservices.org. Walk-ins are also welcome but an appointment is needed to donate platelets.
Community Blood Services is a not-for-profit organization based in Montvale, New Jersey that provides blood and blood products to 30 hospitals, medical centers and trauma centers in New Jersey and New York, including Atlantic Health System hospitals.
Whole blood donors must be 17-75 years of age (16 with parental permission) and weigh at least 110 pounds. Complimentary non-fasting cholesterol and glucose screenings are offered with every donation.
