The American Red Cross will be at St. Francis of Assisi Church Hall, located at 4700 Long Beach Blvd., Long Beach Township on Wednesday, January 15th for the annual Blood Drive. Hours are 1 to 6pm. The need for blood is constant. Your contribution is very important to maintain a healthy and plentiful blood supply. When you donate through the Red Cross, you help save lives by giving of yourself in just about an hour. You may never meet the person who receives your blood, but you will feel good knowing you helped change a life. All presenting donors at the St. Francis Blood Drive are eligible for a $5 Dunkin’ Donuts Gift Card and a chance to enter to win two tickets to Super Bowl XLVIII to be held at MetLife Stadium. Appointments are preferred and can be made at the Red Cross website www.redcrossblood.org (keyword LBI St Francis) or by calling the Community Center at 609-494-8861. Walk-ins are also welcome.
