Gives Donors a Valuable Way to Commemorate the Solemn Day with a Worthy Cause
In an Effort to Spur Blood Donations after the Summer Lull, the Event Encourages Public Safety Employees, Community Residents and Local Workers to Donate and Help Save Lives
The City of Jersey City is once again partnering with the American Red Cross and Suburban Propane to host the 3rd annual Jersey City Police and Fire 9/11 Memorial Blood Drive. As part of the nationwide partnership with 911Day.org, an organization supporting the nation’s largest day of charitable engagement, everyone is invited and encouraged to partake in this special event. The blood drive is a unique way to commemorate the solemn day while potentially saving a life. Jersey City played a critical role in the response and recovery efforts on September 11th, 2001 as the first point of refuge for hundreds of people who evacuated the World Trade Center and lower Manhattan. The blood drive event places an emphasis on community preparedness and we believe volunteer blood donors will help this endeavor through this partnership. The blood drive will be operating from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., with a ceremony at 11 a.m.
