Warren Rescue Squad members are used to the sight of blood—and today, the squad members are hoping to see a few people donate some.
The squad is hosting a blood drive for New Jersey Bood Service from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. While the NJ/NY Blood services says blood supplies are generally healthy, the organization issued an emergency appeal for donors with O negative blood.
"New York Blood Center is asking for help to rebuild an adequate three-day supply of O-negative blood, reserves are currently running at half that, and turnout at blood drives so far in January has been far less than expected," the group announced.
But all types will be welcome to donate, provided donors meet the eligibility requirements.
If today is not a good day for you, but you'd like to help out, register to donate at Our Lady of the Mount Church on Jan. 20, where Blood Services will be holding a drive from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
