Rotary to host Blood Drive

Community Blood Services of Paramus has recently reported that blood supplies have dwindled to less than a one day's supply.  There is a severe blood shortage in North Jersey.  Though all types are in need, there is a severe shortage of O positive and O negative blood.

On October 26, 2013 the Hackensack and Teaneck Rotary Clubs will be joining forces to host a blood drive at the Hackensack Y (360 Main Street).  The blood drive will take place from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm and is being hosted in conjunction with the Community Blood Services.  All are asked to please attend the blood drive and offer a donation as supplies are critically low in the North Jersey area.
