NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ - The New Jersey Blood Services is seeking donors for blood drive Thursday to replenish ever decreasing supplies.

"We are still dealing with our summer shortage situation caused by school closings and vacations and even the weather, so extra help is needed," said Lynne Ross, account manager for NJ Blood Services.

"Every person who donates can help three patients and their families, so there’s a big multiplier effect," Ross said.
