DATE: March 4, 2015

PLACE: 550 Wesley Ave, Ocean City, NJ 08226

TIME: 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Ocean City Masonic Lodge No. 171 will host an American Red Cross Blood Drive 1 p.m.-5 p.m. March. 4th at the Ocean City Tabernacle, 500 Wesley Ave.

Since the beginning of February, severe winter storms have caused thousands of canceled blood and platelet donations. Schedule your appointment today to make a lifesaving donation for patients in need.

Ocean City Lodge #171 and the American Red Cross invite all residents, groups and businesses to donate. To be eligible to donate blood through the American Red Cross, individuals must be at least 17 years of age and in general good health, weigh at least 110 pounds and have not donated in the last 56 days. The American Red Cross is especially in need of Type O blood donors.

Appointments are preferred, but not required. To make an appointment, contact the Red Cross at 800-RED CROSS or sign up online at www.redcrossblood.org.
