People in general good health and weighing over 110 pounds are encouraged to donate blood, so long as it has been at least 56 days since a prior donation. Participants are asked to bring photo ID with signature and should be sure to eat a hearty meal shortly before giving blood. Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are preferred. For appointments or eligibility information call Community Blood Services at 201-251-3703. Learn more at www.communitybloodservices.org. 
According to Community Blood Services:
• Every 2.5 seconds someone needs blood – a friend, a family member – or maybe even you!
• Less than 5% of the population donates blood, yet 80% of the population needs blood.
