Gurdwara Dashmesh Darbar hosts Blood Drive; Community Members respond to crucial need

Marking the anniversary of the 1984 attacks on Harmandir Sahib (the Golden Temple) in Amritsar, the sangat of Gurdwara Dashmesh Darbar in Port Reading, NJ and UNITED SIKHS hosted the annual blood drive, where dozens of community members participated and generously donated. Central Jersey Blood Services partnered with us on this important endeavor.

According to the American Red Cross, in the United States alone, someone needs blood every two seconds, and over 38,000 donations are needed every day. Blood supplies are vital in case of accidents, sickle cell anemia and cancer among others, and cannot be manufactured. Only 38% people in the United States are eligible to donate, which makes contributions on a regular basis very important.

UNITED SIKHS has been consistently conducting blood drives in different communities to respond to this vital and crucial need of people all over the world. A big shout out to those who donated blood at the drive and those who perform this sewa on a regular basis.

We cannot undertake such important projects without the support of generous community members like you. Please volunteer or donate today!
