The message was very clear to the donors that there is a shortage of blood supply in New Jersey and we urge all New Jerseyeans to donate their blood. As per the statisitcs, “New Jersey hospitals were forced to spend an estimated $18 million to $24 million in 2007 to buy precious supplies from other states, according to health and business experts who are banding together Wednesday to announce a statewide blood donation campaign.”

  “A single donation can save up to three lives,” Health and Senior Services Commissioner Heather Howard has said.

We would like to thank the staff of the Community Blood Services and communint members who assisted in this effort: Lisa Anne Brosnan, Lisa Ward, Emma Stoball, Zigna , Sonja Bass, Jonathan Rios, Daljit Singh, Paramjit Kaur, Satinder Kaur

Some Facts: Nine out of 10 people need blood at some point in their lives.
New Jersey State has less than a two-day supply of blood.
Nearly 60 percent of New Jersey adults are eligible to give blood, yet only 2.5 percent do so on a routine basis, according to state health statistics.
If even 5 percent donated — the national average — New Jersey would have no blood shortage.
