Blood donations needed for Lombard’s Fall Veterans Blood Drive in honor of Bill Mueller


LOMBARD, Illinois — The Village of Lombard is hosting its annual fall blood drive on Wednesday, November 15, 2017, in honor of Veteran’s Day. This event also recognizes the former Village President Bill Mueller, who passed away in 2012. Residents are encouraged to donate blood in honor of Veterans Day, in the spirit of Bill Mueller’s dedication to service men and women.

The blood drive will take place from 9:30 a.m. – 1 p.m., at Yorktown Shopping Center at mall entrance #2, near Carson Pirie Scott. The blood drive will then move locations to Lombard’s Village Hall, located at 255 E. Wilson Ave., from 1:15 – 7:30 p.m. Donors will receive a coupon for a free pint of Culver’s Frozen Custard and will automatically be entered in a raffle for a Yorktown Center gift card.

Lombard is home to many veterans who have served, and who continue to serve their country, overseas and at home. In an effort to remember the outstanding courage and commitment to freedom made by our veterans, residents are encouraged to donate blood to pay tribute to those who have given and continue to give so much for our freedoms. Bill Mueller was a life-long servant to the Village of Lombard and this blood drive pays tribute to his passion for giving back to the community, including Lombard’s veterans.
