BAPS Charities Celebrates the Launch of its 75-Day Blood Donation Drive

Tuesday July 25, 2023

On July 25, 2023, BAPS Charities launched its largest blood donation drive at the Swaminarayan Akshardham. The drive will run for over 10 weeks, aiming to collect at least 6,000 pints of blood, which can potentially save 18,000 lives.

The blood drive was inaugurated by Robbinsville Mayor Dave FriedCouncil President Deborah Blakely, and Councilwoman Christine Ciaccio. “The scale of this operation is truly unique, and I’m excited to be a part of it. The selfless mission that BAPS has is an inspiration to all of us, and I’m glad that they chose Robbinsville,” said Mayor Fried, remarking on the Akshardham campus.

The blood drive reflects one of the key goals of Akshardham: to inspire everyone to serve selflessly for the betterment of society. The donated blood will be distributed to hospitals and organizations within the region, such as Miller-Keystone Blood Center, New Jersey Blood Services, RWJBarnabas Health, Vitalant, and The American Red Cross, all of whom have partnered with BAPS Charities.
