Blood drive is set for Monday     Send a link to a friend

[FEB. 26, 2004]  SPRINGFIELD -- Blood is a renewable resource that must be maintained to ensure that our hospitals are supplied with blood to meet planned and emergency needs. To protect the Lincoln and Logan County areas, the next blood drive will be on Monday, March 1, at the Logan County Paramedics Association building, 1300 N. Postville Drive in Lincoln. The hours of the drive will be from noon to 6 p.m. This will be an excellent time to help protect our communities. For your convenience, the hours of the drive will help you donate over lunch hour, during the afternoon or on your way home.

We all know family members and friends who have had life-sustaining blood transfusions. Blood is needed each day for cancer patients, burn victims, accident patients and others facing surgeries. We all face the risk of illness or tragedy. Donating blood saves lives!

The actual donation (withdrawal) takes only six to 12 minutes. The impact can last a lifetime.

Blood donation is a rewarding civic duty. Many people wish they could be actively involved in civic activities but may not be able. However, you can donate blood and in less than an hour. Blood donors can give blood as often as every two months.
