ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ – It is time again for local residents to roll up their sleeves and lend an arm to the community by supporting the 3rd annual blood drive hosted by the Atlantic Highlands First Aid & Safety Squad Monday, July 18, 2016.

The event is being held in honor of dedicated volunteers, the Curry Family.

The blood drive is staged in coordination with the Central Jersey Blood Center and will take place at the Atlantic Highlands Emergency Services Building at 10 E. Highland Ave, Atlantic Highlands, from 3:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

The squad has set a goal to collect at least 30 pints of blood during the event, but would like to see the folks from the CJBC return to their base with even more.

Participating in the blood drive is simple and takes just a short time. Donors need to be 17 years old or older and weigh at least 120 lbs. Those participating are required to bring a signature ID and it is suggested they drink lots of water during the day leading up to the event.  For questions and to schedule an appointment during the event, please call Karen Moore at 732-842-5750, Ext 243.


We treat each of our patients as part of the family at Atlantic Highlands Animal Hospital. We offer top-quality surgical and dental treatments for cats and dogs. For the best pet care in the Atlantic Highlands, NJ, call us at (732) 291-4400.
