According to the American Red Cross, every two seconds someone in the United States is in need of blood or platelets. With high rates of people living with sickle cell, cancer diagnosis, car accidents, and more, there are so many reasons blood, plasma, and platelets are needed. These resources cannot be created, they must be donated. We have rounded up places in Essex County to donate blood, plasma, and platelets. Sixty percent of New Jersey residents are eligible to donate blood, yet only 3.6% donate. Please consult with your healthcare professional to see if you are a good fit and consider helping to save a life. Read on for where to donate.
