Thank you to everyone who donated at the Village’s blood drive! Blood supplies were running low due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but due to your donations, supplies are steady! The spring blood drive collected 146 pints of blood, with the potential to save up to 438 lives!
To help support blood supplies, ongoing Hero Blood Drives will take place at Yorktown Center 4/23, 4/28, 5/6, 5/13, 5/20 & 5/27. Links to available appointments can be found at www.villageoflombard.org/blooddrives.
Blood donations are considered an essential service. Increased safety precautions and social distancing measures will remain in place at these events. This includes prescreening both staff and donors for COVID-19 symptoms, including taking donors’ temperature, complying with social distancing with beds six feet apart and/or separated by a partition, cleaning surface areas and beds after each donation, and providing only packaged snacks and drinks. Versiti staff members are following many new safety measures to ensure donor safety, as well as their own.
