If you want to do some good this summer, why don't you consider donating blood

The Lakewood BlueClaws are teaming up with RWJ Barnabas Health and holding a blood drive on Wednesday, July 15th from 1:00 pm until 7:00 pm at First Energy Park in Lakewood

According to the BlueClaws:

While the need for blood is typically highest in the summer, the COVID-19 pandemic has further depleted the blood supply, making drives like these all the more important.

Pre-registration is strongly recommended and can be made by clicking here or calling 732-235-8100 ext 221 or 248. There is limited availability within each 15-minute time slot to ensure social distancing protocols will be followed.

All donors are instructed to eat and drink prior to the donation and to bring a photo ID. Masks or cloth face coverings are required for entry. Those that have been exposed to or cared for a positive COVID-19 patient within 28 days prior to the drive are not eligible to donate.

A screening will take place on the ground level before donors enter the ballpark.

All donors will receive two complimentary BlueClaws tickets and a commemorative t-shirt. Donors will also be entered to win a $50 gift card and a BlueClaws VIP experience for 20 that includes a night in a Luxury Suite, batting practice access, a ceremonial first pitch, 20 boardwalk and mini-golf passes, and the chance to watch post-game fireworks from the dugout.
