Morristown-Beard School will host its annual Summer Blood Drive on Tuesday, August 8th from 1:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Auxiliary Gymnasium on campus, 70 Whippany Road in Morristown. All members of the community are encouraged to participate.

Anyone 16 years of age or older is eligible to donate blood (16 year-olds require parental permission).  There is currently a blood emergency in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area, so support is needed from all members of the community.

Appointments for blood donation are encouraged and are on a “first-come” basis, however walk-in donors are welcome. To reserve a time, please contact faculty coordinator Laurie Hartman at lhartman@mbs.net or sign up directly on the New York/New Jersey Blood Center website at www.nybc.org.
