Flemington Car and Truck Country employees donated blood at Hunterdon Medical Center during the week of July 13th. Over 40 employees participated in the blood drive. Many people do not realize how important it is to donate blood unless you or a loved one is in need. There is no substitute for blood.
“Our donors are all special people who give blood only to help others in need. It isn’t every day you can save someone’s life,” stated Cathy Conroy, Blood Donor Recruiter Hunterdon Medical Center. “This year, patients at Hunterdon Medical Center will use 2,000 units of blood and blood product. We are incredibly grateful to Flemington Car and Truck Country for their donation.”
To be eligible to donate blood a person must be at least 17 years of age, be in good health and weigh at least 110 pounds.
The Hunterdon Medical Center’s Blood Bank is located on the 3rd Floor of the hospital. The Blood Bank is open Monday – Thursday 9:00 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. and Friday 9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. To schedule an appointment to donate blood, call Hunterdon Medical Center’s Blood Donor Recruiter at (908) 788–6405.
