Local Blood Drive Monday Needs Your Help

Send a link to a friend

[March 29, 2008]  SPRINGFIELD -- 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. Help protect your community, family and friends by ensuring that blood is available at your local hospitals when it is needed.

To help ensure an adequate blood supply for the central Illinois area, there will be a blood drive Monday at Lincoln Christian College, 100 Campus View Drive in Lincoln. The CICBC bloodmobile will be parked at The Warehouse. The hours of the blood drive are 10 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

For your convenience, please call Mary Kay Davis to sign up at 732-3168, ext. 2251, or schedule online at Of course walk-ins are always welcome and sincerely appreciated.

The Central Illinois Community Blood Center is a not-for-profit organization that provides blood to 19 area hospitals. Blood collected at this blood drive is intended for local hospitals.

The blood supply is totally dependent upon volunteers who will take a few minutes to roll up their sleeve and donate blood. If you are healthy, please do your part by donating blood. Blood has a shelf life of only 42 days. Fortunately it is a renewable resource, but it depends on people who care.

The CICBC donor room, located at 1134 S. Seventh St. in Springfield, is open to collect blood on Mondays and Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesdays and Thursdays from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Fridays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon.
