NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - The second annual blood drive sponsored by Overlook Auxiliary Twig #10 will be held from 12 - 6 p.m. on February 23, at the New Providence Memorial Library, located at 377 Elkwood Avenue.

The Auxiliary is partnering with 'Be the Match', a National Bone Marrow Donor Program, and there will be a representative at the drive who will be able to answer any questions about the program. 

February, which is "American Heart Month," is an ideal time for a blood drive, with supplies running low during the winter, when inclement or harsh weather acting as deterrent relative to people donating.
