Bayonne Blood Drive Helps Replenish Area Supplies

Maryann of Bayonne gives blood on June 25.

BAYONNE, NJ – City residents and visitors helped keep the area’s blood supply stocked by donating at a blood drive over the weekend in midtown.

The Catholic War Veterans Post 1612 and American Red Cross held a drive at the post’s hall on West 23rd Street on Saturday, June 25. Bayonne Community Bank sponsored the event.

Dozens of donors gave blood, according to John Nicaretta, who runs the blood drives there along with Art Van Horn and Jack Condon.

The post hosts four per year, and each one usually attracts between 75 to 80 donors, Nicaretta said.

Those who give blood are treated to either breakfast or lunch.

Katherine and Paul Duffy, husband and wife, donated at the event.

“It’s very important to give,” Katherine said.

“There’s always a need,” Paul said.
