BLOOMFIELD NJ - Donate a pint of blood at the Hot Bagels Abroad blood drive on Saturday September 24 and receive a certificate for a pint of beet at Fitzgerald's 1928. The blood drive runs from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Participants in the blood drive will receive breakfast courtesy of Hot Bagels Abroad. In addition "Pint For Pint" certificates will be given to all donors of legal drinking age after their donation. 

Given how critical the need is for blood, owner Frank Grauso encourages the community to drop in to donate on Saturday morning. Appointments were recommended for the blood drive, but Grauso explained that there are a few openings during the day and some people will forget to show. 

Hot Bagels Abroad is located at 1129 Broad Street in the Brookdale section of Bloomfield.
