During the winter months many of us are not thinking about the blood supply at our local hospital. We all assume that when we need it, it will be there. Pelican Ski & Snowboard Shop in Whitehouse Station recognizes the importance of donating blood and would like to give a gift to individuals who donate blood at Hunterdon Medical Center during the month of January and February.

If an individual donates blood at Hunterdon Medical Center from January 1st to February 28th, he or she will receive a donation letter from the hospital to present to Pelican Ski & Snowboard Shop in Whitehouse Station.  The blood donor can present the letter to Pelican and receive a free daily ski and snowboard rental for any day of the season. Donors will also receive a $10 gift card to redeem at the shop.

To be eligible to donate blood a person must be at least 17 years of age, be in good health and weigh at least 110 pounds.  “We are looking for donors of all blood types,” stated Cathy Conroy, Blood Donor Recruiter at the Hunterdon Medical Center.  Conroy said, “Our donors are all special people who give blood only to help others in need.  It isn’t every day you can save someone’s life.  Most of us can give this gift and keep giving it regularly.”

To schedule an appointment to donate blood, call Hunterdon Medical Center’s Blood Donor Recruiter at 908–788–6405.
