Congregation Shaare Tefillah Spearheads Blood Drive

Excitement is growing as Congregation Shaare Tefillah of Teaneck’s second annual blood drive, organized by its Men’s Club and the Red Cross, is rapidly approaching on September 8. The community-wide drive will be held from 9 a.m. to 2.pm. at 510 Claremont Ave. in the synagogue’s social hall. The need for the drive is imperative, as the Red Cross has declared an emergency blood shortage. As the blood drive will take place during Elul, there is no better way to prepare for the High Holidays than by donating blood to those in need. The drive at Shaare Tefillah will be collecting regular blood as well as power red. As an incentive to donors, the Red Cross and Chopstix will be teaming up to give all donors a $5 Chopstix certificate and a voucher for a free haircut at participating Sport Clips hair salons. Shaare Tefillah’s first blood drive last year greatly exceeded expectations and brought together the community. In an effort to make the drive a true community-wide event once again, the Township of Teaneck and TVAC are advertising the drive in their social media posts, and religious organizations across Teaneck have agreed to promote the drive. Advance registration is strongly encouraged, although walk-ins are welcome as well. To register in advance, please go to www.redcrossblood.org  and enter Sponsor Code: Shaare Tefillah.
