Blood Donations Needed

Blood Donations Needed

As is usually the case at this time of year, the Central Illinois Community Blood Center is putting out the call for help.  Amy Friedman with the Blood Center says the first of several community blood drives will be held Monday (Jan 6th) from 9a-5p at the center on South 7th Street.

“We really encourage donations during this slow time when it is cold and it is the holidays and everyone is playing catch-up. But we are low on all blood types,” says Friedman.

Friedman adds that becoming a regular donor in 2014 is something she hopes others will consider as they make their resolutions for the new year.
