Lincoln College to host Red Cross blood drive April 15

PEORIA — Potentially lifesaving blood donations can only come from generous volunteers. This April, during National Volunteer Month, the American Red Cross invites eligible donors of all blood types to roll up a sleeve and help meet the constant need for donated blood.

Approximately 5,600 times a day someone receives blood donated through the Red Cross. While all types are needed, donors with type O-positive or negative, B-negative, and A-negative are especially encouraged to give.

Visit or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) to learn more and schedule an appointment.

Upcoming blood donation opportunity in Logan County:

  • April 15, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., at Lincoln College, 300 Keokuk

How to donate blood

Simply call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit to make an appointment or for more information. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental consent in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.
