Knights host Blood Drive, June 7, 2014

The Knights of Columbus, Council 5410, based in Flanders, NJ, will host a blood drive in co-ordination with The Blood Center of New Jersey, on Saturday, June 7, 2014. The event will take place at the council hall on 3 Schmitt Lane, in Old Flanders (across the RR tracks from the Flanders Fire Dept). The bloodmobile will be available from 8:00AM to 1:00PM. It is often said that Life can turn on a dime. No one likes to think about bad things happening to good people, but sometimes they do. People have accidents or become ill and must rely on both expertise of the medical community and the generosity of volunteer blood donors who take the time to give of themselves for others. Will YOU be one of those who takes the time to donate. Blood donors must be at least 18 years of age (17 if a signed parental permission slip is provided- forms available through the BCNJ).
