Blood Drives – UNITED SIKHS Blog https://www.unitedsikhs.org/blog Recognize The Human Race As One Fri, 01 Sep 2017 23:45:10 +0000 en-US hourly 1 UNITED SIKHS hosts its 45th Blood drive at Gurdwara Singh Sabha,Carteret, NJ https://www.unitedsikhs.org/blog/2012/06/united-sikhs-hosts-its-45th-blood-drive-at-gurdwara-dashmesh-darbarnj/ Mon, 11 Jun 2012 03:42:12 +0000 http://www.unitedsikhs.org/blog/?p=1327 Marking yet another anniversary of the unfortunate 1984 attacks on Harmandir Sahib(Golden temple) in Amritsar, UNITED SIKHS, in collaboration with Community Blood Services (CBS), hosted a blood drive at Gurdwara Singh Sabha in Carteret,,NJ. More than 40 community members participated and generously donated blood. This was UNITED SIKHS’s 45th blood drive and yet another attempt to serve the community in every possible way.

According to America’s Blood Center’s(ABC), only 38 percent of the U.S. population is eligible to donate blood out of which less than 10 percent do annually, and about 1 in 7 people entering a hospital need blood. One pint of blood can save up to three lives and with the support of Gurdwara Management and CBS, we were able to collect more than 40 pints of blood in this blood drive.

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 thanks to all those who donated blood at the drive and those who perform this sewa on a regular basis. Also, we thank the management of Gurdwara Singh Sabha at Carteret,NJ who has always been very supportive and compassionate in organising such drives.

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

19th April, NJ:Blood Drive at Glenrock New Jersey: Severe Shortage of Blood in New Jersey https://www.unitedsikhs.org/blog/2009/04/blood-drive-in-glenrock-new-jersey-with-new-jersey-blood-donation/ Fri, 24 Apr 2009 07:03:19 +0000 http://www.unitedsikhs.org/blog/?p=74 donorandlisaannebrosnan20th April 2009: UNITED SIKHS  Sikh Aid co-ordinator, Paramjit Kaur, conducted a blood drive with the “Community Blood Services” donation Center at the Gurudwara Sri Guru Singh Sabha, Glenrock, New Jersey.  25  people registered to donate blood out of which 21 were able to donate blood. 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.
