Our Exclusive Type O Negative CMV Negative Donor Program
Did you know that Community Blood Services needs at least 60 O negative CMV negative blood donors every week to help babies in our community hospitals? Donors like YOU can make the difference!
The Special Delivery Donor Club is a new program at Community Blood Services that encourages regular donations from Type O- CMV negative donors to ensure we can meet the needs of our tiniest hospital patients. Members can make their lifesaving donations at our Paramus or Lincoln Park donor centers in New Jersey or at our New Windsor Donor Center in New York.
Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is a common virus found in the environment that is not generally a serious infection EXCEPT for patients with compromised health conditions, including critically ill babies. Your blood type, and the fact you havenít been exposed to this virus, makes you the perfect type to donate blood and help save these babies lives!
As a club member youíll receive a:
- Special Delivery T-shirt
- Special Delivery sticker each time you donate that identifies you as a special donor
- Special Delivery sticker on each blood donation sent to the hospital
- Special Delivery recognition certificate and ceremony at the end of the year
By committing to at least THREE lifesaving donations a year as a club member, you can have the heartwarming feeling of knowing you are helping to save the lives of babies who need you!
