To the Editor:
The Bayonne Civic League, established in 2017 as a nonprofit organization dedicated to boosting community involvement, is hosting a blood drive on February 24, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. American Red Cross will facilitate donations, and the event is being held at the Grace Lutheran Church on 37th Street and Avenue C. If you are able to donate, please join us.
This blood drive was inspired by the devastation hitting parts of our country toward the end of last year. In an effort to make sure that our local communities within the Garden State have what they need during difficult times, the Bayonne Civic League raises money, facilitates donations, and takes on other activities to benefit our neighbors. We hope all who are able can join us in our first blood drive.
Walk-ins are welcome but appointments are preferred, if possible. If interested, please sign up for a specific time at www.redcrossblood.org, and type in “Bayonne” in the search bar within the “Find a Blood Drive” box in the top right of the website.
If you are interested in learning more about the Bayonne Civic League and the monthly community activities we host, please come to one of our meetings. We meet on the first Monday of every month at 7:30 p.m. on the second floor of Hendrickson’s (31st and Broadway). You can also email us at any time to learn more, at Bayonne.Civic.League@gmail.com.
