SPRINGFIELD, NJ - There will be a blood drive Friday January 5 at Jonathan Dayton High School from 9:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Probably because of the weather, there have been so many cancellations today that the New York Blood Center has asked for help with spreading the word to get extra donors out to the blood drive to make up for the almost 2,000 units of blood they believe are being lost today.

The blood drive takes place during National Blood Donor Month.  All donors will receive a coupon for $15 off at Jiffy Lube.
