The annual Jersey City Police and Fire 9/11 Memorial Blood Drive was held Friday at the Hyatt Regency a day before the country recognized 20 years since the Sept. 11 attacks.
The Red Cross blood drive is held each year to honor the lives lost during the terror attacks.
First responders partner with the local Red Cross for the event.
Organizers like Jersey City Fire Department Chief Steven McGill say it’s a great way for the public to give back and help save lives on what has become a day of service and remembrance.
“It just brings back a lot of sentimental things and memories of how well everyone worked together,” McGill says. “Even people, citizens came out. Just everyone came to gather as one and helped out that day.”
The blood driver is held at the Hyatt Regency on the Jersey City Riverfront each year.
It served as a triage location for people fleeing Manhattan during the terror attacks 20 years ago.
