Blood Donations Are Needed

New Jersey Blood Services strongly urges individuals who feel healthy and well to make an appointment at a donor center to give blood and platelets. This will ensure they are prepared to support health agencies in our communities and across the country during this public health emergency.

Howell Donor Center has extended its operating hours to ensure ample appointments are available. Open Tuesday – Thursday for blood and platelets and open every Sunday for blood only (ask for specific hours when calling for an appointment). At this time, walk-ins will not be accepted to support donor flow and safety.

Giving blood is safe! Go to to find out more and to make your appointment, or call (800) 933-2566.
