Celebrate National Blood Donor month with the Village of Lombard and donate blood to the annual Winter Community Blood Drive on Wednesday, Jan. 18.
Blood centers are in need of donors to address the current critical blood shortage. The Blood Drive will be held at Yorktown Center, (upper level by Carson's, Entrance 2), from 9:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. and then at the Village Hall, 255 E. Wilson Ave., from 1:15 to 7 p.m.
American Red Cross and Heartland Blood Centers are currently reporting a critical need for blood and platelet donors. Officials are urging ALL eligible donors, regardless of type, to give now for patients to receive life-saving treatment. While winter is always a challenging time to ensure enough blood and platelets are on the shelves, early onset of illness and severe weather have dramatically affected collections with blood reserves running dramatically low.
To address the emergency blood shortage, the Village of Lombard and Heartland Blood Centers need all healthy and legible donors to roll up their sleeve and save a life.
At the winter blood drive, every donor will receive a $10 Noodles & Company gift card and a coupon for a free pint of Culver's frozen custard as a thank you for your life-saving donation. In addition, all donors will be entered to win a gift card from Yorktown Center.
Appointments are encouraged but walk-ins are welcome. A photo ID is required. For more information or to book a donation time slot, call Blood Drive Coordinator Carol Bauer at (630) 620-5712.
