Tragic events like Super Storm Sandy inspire a large number of people to help, but blood is needed at all times
Plainsboro, NJ (PRWEB) June 04, 2013
Home Care Assistance, North America’s leading provider of in-home care for seniors, has teamed up with New Jersey Blood Drive Services to host a community blood drive outside of their Plainsboro, New Jersey office. The New Jersey Blood Services will award each donor a pair of New York Mets tickets and Home Care Assistance will be raffling off a Kindle pre-loaded with their award winning Senior Wellness books. Since Father’s Day is the following Sunday, participants are encouraged to bring their fathers or give blood in their father’s name.
New Jersey Blood Services is a division of New York Blood Center, which supports hospitals with blood and clinical services in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. NJBS partners with hundreds of organizations each year to ensure that there is an ample blood supply for the ill and injured in our communities.
“June is a very important month to hold blood drives, as it is critical that we build the blood supply to ample levels heading in to the July 4th holiday and the summer months,” according to Marie Forrestal, Director of Recruitment for New Jersey Blood Services (NJBS). “We are grateful to organizations such as Home Care Assistance for sponsoring blood drives and deeply appreciative of all the donors who come out to donate this month.”
Home Care Assistance is honored to partner with New Jersey Blood Services to host such a valuable community event. “Tragic events like Super Storm Sandy inspire a large number of people to help, but blood is needed at all times and I believe this blood drive is a great way for Home Care Assistance to show their ever-present support,” said Lance Abramowitz, client care manager of Home Care Assistance.
The community blood drive will be held on June 12th from 1:00pm to 7:00pm. A bus from the New Jersey Blood Services will be parked outside of the Home Care Assistance office at 9 Schalks Crossing Road, Suite 710, Plainsboro, New Jersey. Help save a life and donate blood with Home Care Assistance and the New Jersey Blood Services.
