Blood Drive Scheduled to Honor Local Resident Saturday, May 4, 2019

Posted

Please Schedule Your Next Life-Giving Donation NOW!

On Saturday, May 4, 2019 Vitalant Blood Services of New Jersey will be in town to conduct a Nutley Community Blood Drive in honor of resident Anne Rotonda.

In 2013 Anne was diagnosed with AML– Acute Myeloid Leukemia. At that time, the Board of Commissioners held the first blood drive in Anne’s honor. In 2017 she was re-diagnosed with the same disease and in September of 2017 received a bone marrow transplant. Anne continues her battle with this disease, but has remained optimistic and hopeful, always flashing that million dollar smile and offering words of encouragement to all that cross her path.

The drive will be held at the Nutley Parks and Rec Building - 44 Park Avenue, Room 300 from 10:00am – 3:00pm. Donors must be between the ages of 16 and 76, weigh over 110lbs and be in general good health. Walk-Ins Welcome!

For more information, please call the Department of Public Affairs at 973-284-4976. If you would like to schedule an appointment please click on the following link: https://donor.cbsblood.org/donor/schedules/drive_schedule/48815 or call (201) 251-3703.
