The Village of Lombard is hosting a Spring Blood Drive on Tuesday, April 18, 2023, and is inviting residents to donate blood to help save lives. The blood drive will begin at the lower level of Yorktown outside of Von Maur from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and continue at the First Church of Lombard Fellowship Hall, 220 S. Main Street, from 1:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
According to the American Red Cross, every two seconds someone in the United States needs blood. By donating blood, individuals can make a life-saving difference in the lives of those who rely on these donations to treat cancer, chronic illnesses, and traumatic injuries.
As a form of appreciation, all donors will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win an electric bike. All NEW donors who sign up in advance and add the code FRESH to their appointment notes will receive a $10 e-gift card emailed to them within days of their donation.
It is important to note that if you feel ill, it is advised that you stay home and reschedule your appointment for a later date. However, healthy individuals are encouraged to keep their appointments and will undergo a health screening process prior to their donation. Appointments are encouraged, but walk-ins are also welcome.
To schedule a donation time slot or for more information, please contact Blood Drive Coordinator Carol Bauer at (630) 620-5712 or visit www.villageoflombard.org/blooddrives.
