St. Augustine’s church saves 192 lives with blood drive; more donors needed


Share post:

More than 50 blood donors came out to support the St. Augustine’s Church community blood drive with their lifesaving blood.

One unit of blood can help up to three different patients, so 192 lives will be impacted from the blood drive held on July 8 in the Kendall Park section of South Brunswick, according to information provided by New York Blood Center.

The blood supply is at a dangerously low level due to COVID-19, and New Jersey Blood Services is desperately seeking large venues where blood drives can be held while maintaining social distancing, according to the statement.

The blood center is unable to run bus drives so it is imperative these sites are found so donors can find a donation location. New Jersey Blood Services (NJBS) reports that last summer more than 1,500 units of blood were donated on bus mobile drives that cannot run this summer to safely social distance, according to the statement.
