There will be two donation sites to choose from: Yorktown Shopping Center in the Heartland Mobile Coach, parked outside entrance 5 between Von Maur and The Eatery from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. and at the Village Hall, 255 E. Wilson Ave, 1:30 to 7 p.m.
Donors will receive from Heartland Blood Centers; an official NFL licensed Chicago Bears hat and a coupon for a free pint of Culver’s Ice Cream. Donors will additionally be entered into a raffle for a Yorktown gift card and tickets to a future Cubs game, courtesy of Republic Bank.
“Every 2 seconds, someone needs blood in the United States, and there’s no artificial substitute for human blood,” said the Village’s Blood Drive Coordinator Carol Bauer. “One donation can help save the lives of up to three people and only takes twelve minutes. The entire process, from the time you arrive to the time you leave takes only 1 hour.”
Bauer encourages donors to book an appointment by visiting villageoflombard.org/blooddrives but walk-ins are welcome. Contact Carol Bauer at (630) 620-5712 or email@example.com with any questions.
