The severe need for blood has prompted a seventeen-year-old Mainland Regional student to organize a blood drive for the American Red Cross according to the Press of Atlantic City. There has been an extreme urgency for blood donations since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

Linwood resident Julianna Lubeck and her family have always been active in donating blood. With the need for donations at a critical phase, Lubeck, along with the Red Cross has helped in organizing a blood drive on July 29th from 2 to 7 PM at Beth Isreal Synagogue located on Shore Road in Northfield.

If you can help and give the gift of blood you can schedule an appointment at 1-800-RED CROSS or you can sign up at RedCrossBlood.org. For donating you'll also receive a $10 Amazon Gift Card and you'll have a chance to win FREE GAS for an entire year.

And, how can some communities show a vaccination rate of more than 100%, according to state data? Reasons include people who have moved, those who are traveling and not residing at home where the census counted them, students who may select their school residence for vaccination data and people in long-term care (or other facility-based housing) among other reasons, as explained in a footnote on the state COVID dashboard.
