Community Blood Services Needs You

As the school year comes to an end, so does the Blood Center’s schedule of high school and college blood drives, and this means a decrease in the overall rate of blood donation, by as much as 20%. While opportunities for donation are available throughout the summer, WCIA is hosting it’s own drive on Friday, June 28th from 9am-3pm.
To thank donors who support the blood supply during the summer months, Central Illinois Community Blood Center (CICBC) will provide all presenting donors with a voucher to redeem for a $10 gift card beginning Memorial Day (Mon., May 27). The Blood Center’s summer promotion will continue through Sept. 8, with multiple drawings for $500 Visa gift cards scheduled during the most challenging weeks of summer.

All persons age 17 and up (or 16, with a signed parental permission form) who weigh at least 110 lbs. and are in general good health meet the basic eligibility requirements for blood donation.
