[ARCHIVED] Lombard Blood Drives Collect More than 100 Pints

Donate Blood. Save lives.

January is National Blood Donor Month, a time to honor voluntary blood donors and encourage more people to donate blood and help save lives. 

The Village of Lombard is thanking donors for their life-saving blood donations at the Village's Winter Blood Drive and other local community blood drives this month. Through these blood drives, a total of 115 pints were collected for the combined potential to save up to 345 lives.  

The COVID-19 pandemic has put additional pressure on blood supplies, leading to critical blood donation shortages across the country. The Village of Lombard encourages residents to become blood donors and help save lives. 

Each winter, spring, summer and fall, the Village of Lombard, in conjunction with Versiti Blood Centers, hosts blood drives at Yorktown and the First Church of Lombard. The Village's remaining blood drives will be held on April 19, June 14 and September 13, as well as a blood drive on November 15 to honor our Veterans and former Village President Bill Mueller. 

For information on becoming a blood donor, contact the Village of Lombard at 630-620-5712 or visit www.villageoflombard.org/blooddrives to learn more.
