PRINCETON, NJ, February 7, 2006 – The American Red Cross of Central New Jersey asks you to be the one to help save a life by giving blood at the following blood drive:

Saturday, February 18, 2006
8:30 AM - 2:30 PM
American Red Cross of Central New Jersey - Hunterdon Branch
349 Route 31 South, Building B, Suite 501
Flemington, NJ 08822
Contact: Barbara Barrett – 908-284-0924

To make an immediate appointment for this Red Cross blood drive, call Red Cross Account Manager Barbara Barrett at 908-284-0924. Leave a message with your name, phone number, and time you would like to donate blood and she will return your call to confirm your appointment.

As an added incentive, this blood drive will participate in the Red Cross “Fire Up the Weekend Grill” February promotion. All presenting blood donors who come to donate at this Saturday blood drive will receive:
• Automatic entry into a raffle to win a Gas Grill and a set of Gourmet Grilling Tools
• A Chef’s Apron with the message “Kiss the Donor” and the American Red Cross emblem on the front
• A recipe card featuring the recipe for the Philadelphia Phillies Bulls BBQ Sauce

To keep pace with the rising demand for blood, the Red Cross is asking more people to roll up their sleeves and give the gift of life. The need for blood is growing because of medical advancements and changing demographics. Thirty-eight percent of all blood products are used today for people 65 and older. This population is expected to grow 14 percent in the next 10 years, almost twice as fast as the rest of the population.

Most healthy people who are at least 17 years old and weigh 110 pounds or more are eligible to donate every 56 days. Donors can give blood at any one of nearly 200 bloodmobiles sponsored by business and community groups in New Jersey and Pennsylvania weekly, or at one of nine community donor centers.

Together, we can save a life
