New Jersey

H4M-NJsmallSurvivors in New Jersey have come together to host regular blood drives, including on Maternal Health Awareness Day (January 23). Check here for updates about local maternal health events throughout the year.

Did you know: There is a critical blood shortage nationwide. It’s estimated that 9 out of 10 people will require blood during their lifetime. We hope you will join us at our next blood drive and be a hero for someone in need! Mothers and survivors will be in attendance to share their personal stories of why blood donations are so important and to thank those who give the gift of life.
