Paramus-New Jersey Blood Services, a division of New York Blood Center, is asking local residents to donate blood at the Outlets at Bergen Town Center in Paramus on Friday, July 7, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. The day-long drive will be held inside the mall in the Whole Foods wing across from Marshall’s.
In appreciation, each donor will receive a voucher for a pair of 2017 New York Mets tickets, a Whole Foods Market coupon, and refreshments.
Blood donors are greatly needed now. Donations tend to be lowest during the summer months because many people are away on vacation. Also, donations from high schools and colleges, which account for 25 percent of regional blood collection, decrease when schools close for the summer.
To donate blood or for information, go to www.nybloodcenter.org or call (800) 933-2566.
