We Remember Blood Drive: Sept. 13, 2017

2017 year marks the 16th anniversary of the September 11th Attacks on the World Trade Center, and the Village of Lombard is joining organizations across the country to encourage blood donations to honor those who lost their lives. Due to Hurricane Henry in Texas, donations collected will first replenish local blood bank sources, with the potential for excess of blood supplies being sent to Texas. 

Lombard’s Annual “We Remember” Blood Drive is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept.13, 2017, 9:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. in the Heartland Mobile Coach at Yorktown Shopping Center (parked outside entrance 5 between Von Maur and The Eatery), and 1:15 – 7 p.m., at Village Hall, 255 E. Wilson Ave. All donors will receive a coupon for a free pint of Culver’s custard, a free entry voucher for Siegel’s Cottonwood Farm Pumpkin Fest valid Sept. 23 – Oct. 31, and will be registered to win a Yorktown gift card.

“Donating blood takes only 45 minutes and can save the life of someone in need,” said Lombard’s Blood Drive Coordinator, Carol Bauer. “Every 3 seconds someone needs blood and when you donate, you are providing someone’s friend or loved one another chance on life.”
