HOBOKEN - A Hoboken blood drive served a double purpose, collecting donations for Sandy relief while taking donations of life-saving blood.

Gotham Realty hosted the drive Thursday. Organizers say each person who donated also gave money for Sandy victims.

Mandouh Csintalan says they wanted to help out in two ways. "This blood drive not only saves lives through blood donations... while everyone donates, we're also raising money for the Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund at the same time,” Csintalan says.

Another drive with a similar goal is being planned in the near future.
