TOMS RIVER – PBA Local 137 is hosting an American Red Cross blood drive on Monday, April 29 at the American Legion at 2025 Church Road from 2:30 pm – 7:30 pm.
To schedule a donation time, please call Patrolman Pete Saker at 732-349-0150 ext. 1362 or visit RedCrossBlood.org and enter: toms river pba.
According to the Red Cross, the blood donation process from the time you arrive until the time you leave takes about an hour. The donation itself is only about 8-10 minutes on average, during which you’ll be seated comfortably or lying down.
When approximately a pint of whole blood has been collected, the donation is complete and a staff person will place a bandage on your arm.
