Help the Chatham Emergency Squad Reach its 1,000th Pint of Blood!

On Saturday, March 11th, the Chatham Emergency Squad (CES) will hold its late winter blood drive. The event will take place at the Squad’s Borough location, 31 North Passaic Avenue in Chatham starting at 8:30AM and running until 2:30PM. What is exciting about this drive, which is held multiple times per year, is that it is almost certain that the 1,000th pint of blood will be donated. The Squad has been running these drives for 10 years.

There will be a prize for the “winner” (i.e., the person who happens to donate that pint of blood), a raffle for all donors to enter and a celebratory sheet cake for all to mark the big day.
