The city of Union City planned this past Friday to honor Dr. Francisco Osvaldo Cortina by naming 38th Street from New York Avenue to Palisade Avenue “Dr. Cortina Way.” They said the honor was due to “his life’s work and dedication to the residents of the city.”

Volunteers needed at New Jersey Blood Services

New Jersey Blood Services, which supplies blood products and services to 60 hospitals throughout the state, is in need of volunteers at blood drives.

“The blood service volunteer is an integral member of the collection team, whose task it is to assist donors with registration, escorting, and canteen duties, and to watch for post-donation reactions,” said R. Jan Zepka, manager of community relations.

Volunteers should have the ability to relate to the public, be able to perform different jobs as needed, and have the willingness to follow rules.

For additional information, contact Zepka at (732) 616-8741 or rzepka@nybloodcenter.org.
