Give Blood and Join the World's Biggest Huddle

If you run a small business, you may have questions about the feasibility of conducting a blood drive at your workplace. Recruitment specialists at any one of New Jersey’s six blood centers can advise you. Moreover, there are a variety of ways you can support blood donation and encourage your employees to give blood.

Here are three options:

  • Encourage your employees to donate during a scheduled blood drive in your community.

    The Coalition Calendar found on this website lists by county blood drives open to the public with information on time, dates and location. Share information on local blood drives with your employees and let them know you support their participation.

  • Call your local blood center or hospital donation center to schedule appointments for employees to come to their facility to donate.

    Provide time-off or some other incentive to encourage employees to donate blood. Check out the lists of blood centers and hospitals to find the one located nearest you.

  • Join with other businesses to conduct a blood drive.

  • If you and other employers in your community would like to join forces to conduct a blood drive at a central location, any one of the New Jersey blood centers would be happy to help you set up and conduct the drive. Their professional staffs are just a phone call away.

No matter which course of action you take, this website can help you find the resources and contacts you need to become a blood drive supporter in your community.

One pint of blood from a single donor may save 3 lives.
