The Mercerville Fire Company is once again teaming up with The Community Blood Council of New Jersey to host a blood drive for our community. All blood collected gets redistributed to local area hospitals and trauma centers (RWJ – Hamilton, RWJ – New Brunswick, Princeton University Medical Center, Capital Health Systems & CentraState Healthcare System to name a few) and will help save the lives of our own neighbors, friends and families.
– Anyone who donated at our last drive is eligible to donate again!
