SPRINGFIELD -- To help ensure an adequate blood
supply for area hospitals, there will be a blood drive on the
bloodmobile on Tuesday at Lincoln Christian College, 100 Campus View
Drive in Lincoln. The blood drive will be from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Of course walk-ins are always welcome and sincerely appreciated.
Your help is vital to protecting your community's blood supplies
for cancer patients, burn victims, accident patients and others
facing surgeries. Chances are that you or someone special to you
will need a blood transfusion during your lifetime. The blood supply
is totally dependent upon volunteers who will take a few minutes to
roll up their sleeve and donate blood.
Blood donation is a rewarding civic duty. Many people wish they
could be more active in civic activities but can't because of time
restrictions. However, you can donate blood in less than an hour and
make an impact that can last a lifetime for someone.
