While the need for blood is typically highest in the summer, the COVID-19 pandemic has further depleted the blood supply, making drives like these all the more important.

"The shortage started in 2019 immediately following Christmas and New Year's, which is also typical. However, with the onset of COVID-19, we saw a totally new reality when it came to blood and blood donation," said Sally Wells, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Blood Services Business Development Liaison.

All donors are instructed to eat and drink prior to the donation and to bring a photo ID. Masks or cloth face coverings are required for entry. Those that have been exposed to or cared for a positive COVID-19 patient within 28 days prior to the drive are not eligible to donate.

A screening will take place on the ground level before donors enter the lobby outside the ballpark.

All donors will receive two complimentary BlueClaws tickets and a commemorative t-shirt. Donors will also be entered to win a $50 gift card and a BlueClaws VIP experience for 20 that includes a night in a Luxury Suite, batting practice access, a ceremonial first pitch, 20 boardwalk and mini golf passes, and the chance to watch post-game fireworks from the dugout.

The BlueClaws are the Jersey Shore's top stop for affordable, family entertainment.
