How YOU can Help Hurricane Harvey & Irma’s Victims for Free!

Community Blood Services: Donate Blood for Hurricane Irma and Harvey Victims

The devastating force of Hurricane Harvey flooded numerous Texas homes. Now, Hurricane Irma threatens to do the same.. Like many other Americans, we at Vigor Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation have sat and watched, helpless to aid the people in the storm’s path.

The good news is there is a low-cost, easy way that we can help victims of Harvey & Irma: Give blood. According to Patch, Robert Kessler, Community Blood Services’ recruitment director had this to say:  “A natural disaster such as Hurricane Harvey brings attention to the crucial importance of blood donations. New Jersey residents have at their fingertips the opportunity to save lives.”

Over the month of September, Community Blood Services will be taking blood donations across Bergen, Essex, and Passaic Counties. Appointments are not required and “walk ins” are welcome.

We have included lists, organized by local county, so you can easily find a location to donate near you (for a complete list, check out this schedule).
