Thank you to Blood Drive Donors!
On behalf of the Montgomery Township Health Department, we would like to extend a big thank-you to all residents, community partners and employees who rolled up their sleeves on Wednesday, June 21, 2017 at the Montgomery Township Blood Drive. We collected 29 donations, which helped save 87 lives of patients in the hospitals in need of blood transfusions.

Whether you booked an appointment, came in with family members to show your support, or just stopped by because you saw our signs along the roadway, your time and donations were greatly appreciated!

  June 21 st marks the first day of summer, but it also marks the start of a seasonal decline in blood and platelet donations. Unfortunately, during the summer months, blood supplies run critically short, especially with many people being away on vacations. Blood has a very short shelf life and therefore, must be replenished regularly. Most people think that blood is going to be there should they ever need it, or if a loved one needs it, but it won't always be the case if people don't come out to donate.
