Clifton Health Department
And Clifton PBA #36
Sends Thanks

The Clifton Health Department and Clifton PBA #36 are grateful that over 30 participants offered to donate blood at the Clifton Community Blood Drive on 11/30 during the busy start of the holiday season.  Altogether 23 pints of blood were collected from the 30 people who registered, which included several first-timers.  One donor was the lucky winner of a $25 gift card donated by Community Blood Services.

Most units of blood collected in our area by Community Blood Services are distributed to our local hospitals such as Hackensack Medical Center, St Joe’s Hospital in Paterson/Wayne, Englewood Hospital,  Holy Name, Chilton, Hackensack Mountainside, etc.  Predominantly, the blood is used for cancer patients, burn victims, open heart surgery, automobile accident victims, trauma victims, and babies.

On behalf of all the people who will benefit from those 23 units of blood donated here that day, the Clifton Health Department and PBA #36 thank you for helping us to get the word out for the event.  We’ll let you know when our winter blood drive is scheduled.  In the meantime, enjoy a safe, healthy, happy holiday season!
