Middletown’s Red Barn Dental to Host Inaugural Blood Drive

10212017

Research has shown that someone is in need of blood every two seconds and a single blood donation can save three lives.  But there’s a shortage of blood many of our local hospitals are facing.  Dr. Christopher Armento and Dr. Lisa Indelicato, the husband and wife team behind Red Barn Dental, the Middletown family dentistry that opened in 2014, is partnering with Robert Wood Johnson to host the inaugural blood drive at its office.

“My wife and I receive calls to donate all the time,” said Dr. Christopher Armento.  “As healthcare professionals we are aware of the serious shortage of blood and feel it’s our responsibility to do our part in closing the gap, especially right here in our own community.”

In addition to cookies and refreshments being offered, Red Barn Dental will also be giving T-shirts to all donors.  In addition, all donors will be eligible to win one of many gift cards and prizes the office and RWJUH will be giving away.  “We want to show our appreciation to those who come out because we truly understand the impact of these donations,” said Dr. Lisa Indelicato. 

The blood drive will take place on Saturday, October 21, 2017 from 10 a.m to 3 p.m.  All blood types are being collected.  Donors are encouraged to make an appointment in advance and will need to provide two forms of identification at check-in.  Red Barn Dental is located at 361 Kings Hwy E, I Middletown NJ.
