The Village of Lombard invites you to help save even more lives at its Summer Blood Drive on Wednesday, July 8, 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Yorktown Entrance 2, and from 1:30 to 7 p.m. at the Village Hall, 255 E. Wilson Ave.

The Village of Lombard has hosted 133 blood drives with Heartland Blood Centers since 1988, which have collected 12,274 units of blood, resulting in a potential of 36,833 lives saved.

“It’s important to remember that the need for blood doesn’t take a summer vacation,” said Carol Bauer, the Village’s Blood Drive Coordinator. “Every three seconds, someone needs blood. The donations collected by the Village of Lombard blood drives have helped save the lives of thousands of people in Illinois and Indiana. You can make a life changing impact in someone’s lives by donating on July 8.”

Five lucky area donors will receive a $1,000 scholarship to be used toward college. Donors can also nominate a student on their behalf, to help improve their chances of winning. All donors will receive a coupon for a free pint of ice cream from Culver's, as a part of "give a pint, get a pint". Donors will receive Target gift cards and will be entered to win a Yorktown gift card. For questions or to make an appointment for the summer blood drive, please contact Carol Bauer at (630) 620-5712 or bauerc@villageoflombard.org.
