Please Schedule Your Next Life-Giving Donation NOW!

Commissioner John V. Kelly, III and the Nutley Department of Public Affairs and Health are pleased to partner with Vitalant Blood Services of New Jersey to conduct their annual Community Mobile Blood Drive in memory of Nutley resident and business owner Keith Jaret.  Keith and Maureen Jaret were Nutley business owners and residents for many years.  Many of you know, love and remember them as the driving force behind the Petit Café as well as Jaret’s Stuffed Cupcakes.  In February 2018, Keith passed away due to liver disease.

The drive will be held on Monday, January 30, 2023, at the Nutley Public Affairs Building located at 149 Chestnut Street from 2:30-7:30pm, by appointment only. All safety precautions will be put in place to ensure the health and well-being of all donors and technicians.  Please do not donate if you are sick or may have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus. As always, donors must be between the ages of 16 and 76, weigh over 110lbs and be in general good health.
