American Red Cross Adds Weekly Blood Drives in Response to Shortage Caused by COVID-19
In response to the critical need for blood, the American Red Cross of the Illinois River Valley will host a series of weekly blood drives.
If you are healthy, feeling well and eligible to give blood or platelets, please make an appointment to donate as soon as possible by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, go to www.RedCrossBlood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
Type O donations are especially needed right now.
The Red Cross only collects blood from individuals who are healthy and feeling well at the time of donation.
Donating blood does not impact or weaken the immune system.
Dates/times for Blood Drives: Blood Drives will take place at the American Red Cross Chapter House, 1293 Windham Parkway in Romeoville.
