BRANT BEACH - The American Red Cross will be at St. Francis of Assisi Church Hall located at 4700 Long Beach Blvd., Long Beach Township, NJ on Wednesday, November 28, 2018 for a blood drive.  Hours are 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.   

According to the Red Cross there is a CRITICAL NEED FOR BLOOD DONATIONS.   To meet patient needs, the Red Cross asks eligible individuals unaffected by Hurricane Michael and Florence to give blood. The storm has forced the cancellation of dozens of blood drives, causing approximately 700 units of blood to go uncollected in Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina. More blood drive cancellations are likely. 

Appointments are preferred and can be made at the Red Cross website: (keyword LBI St Francis) or by calling the Community Center at 609-494-8861. Walk-ins are also welcome.
