17th Masonic District — Blood Drives

When you donate blood, you can help treat premature babies, burn and trauma victims, patients suffering from leukemia and other cancers, cardiac disease, and many other conditions that depend on blood products for recovery. Approximately 65% of the blood supply comes from mobile blood drive locations sponsored by area businesses, communities, schools, and other organizations.

Whether you’re 16 or 60, you can help the Central Jersey Blood Center in its mission to provide an adequate, high quality, and safe supply of blood and blood products to hospitals in New Jersey. For answers to common blood donor questions about blood donor eligibility and information about the benefits of blood donation, click here.

Blood donors who are 16 years old, weigh at least 120 pounds and have never had hepatitis are good candidates to give blood. Children aged 16 must have parental consent to donate blood; 17 and up can donate blood in NJ without parental consent. There is no upper age limit. Medications frequently taken by healthy individuals, such as aspirin, diet pills, birth control pills, blood pressure medication, and cholesterol medication are not a reason for deferral. The use of other medications will be evaluated by a nurse. To learn more about blood donor eligibility, click here.

Giving blood is a safe, free and valuable way for people as young as 16 (with parental consent) and as old as 75 to help their local communities.
