Lawrenceville Elementary School, in cooperation with the Community Blood Council of New Jersey, is set to host its bi-annual blood drive.

For every pint received, CBCNJ will donate $10 toward maintaining the award-winning student garden at LES.

According to CBCNJ, one pint of blood can save up to three lives and takes less than 10 minutes to give.

The blood drive is scheduled for 2:30pm to 7:30pm April 10. The CBCNJ Blood Mobile will be parked outside the main entrance of LES located at 40 Craven Lane in Lawrenceville.

Those who cannot attend the drive can donate blood at CBCNJ, located at 1410 Parkside Ave. in Ewing Township. Be sure to mention the LES Blood Drive.

For more information or to make an appointment to donate, contact LES school nurse, Karen Sine at (609) 671-5573 or
