TODAY: Blood Drive in Lakewood to help with serious shortage

There is currently a serious shortage of type O blood throughout the state of New Jersey and the Country, and blood type O shipments to local hospitals are being cut.

The RWJUH Blood Services is appealing to all eligible blood donors, especially those with type O blood to GIVE NOW and help ensure that lifesaving patient care is not impacted.

A blood drive sponsored by the Lakewood Scoop, Bikur Cholim and Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus is planned for Thursday, March 7, in the Schulman Auditorium from 12:00 noon until 6:30 pm.

Kosher pizza from Village Pizza South will be delivered throughout the day. Stop by for a slice and TO SAVE A LIFE!

To schedule an appointment go to or call 732-235-8100 ext. 221 or 248

  1. @eligible- The article says that Schulman auditorium is in MMC SOuth aka Kimball. I’ve donated blood there before. When you walk in the main entrance you will be directed to the auditorium by front desk staff and signs. It’s very simple and easy.

  2. All blood types are needed. We are emphasizing the need for both type O pos and O neg since supplies of these types are critically low. We will test for blood type in all donors and send donor cards to all after the drive.

  3. If this was on a Sunday I’m sure my husband would attend! When you commute to work, it is not possible to be around during a weekday

  4. I wish i could join! I was there last time.. I’m sorry I cant make it and I hope there is another one soon. Last time it was an incredible experience!!

  5. i gave blood the last time they had an evening drive in July. I don’t know why they don’t extend the hours until 8-9 o’clock so they can catch all the people that want to give but are not in lakewood before 6:30 during the week? This has been brought up before i don’t understand why we have to beg to get a better time for people that would love to give but need alternate times?
