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.
Walk ins are welcome, but appointments are recommended and are available by calling 1-800-933-2566, or by visiting tinyurl.com.
Those planning to donate are reminded to eat a meal prior and to bring photo identification to the blood drive.
