Due to a decrease in donations after Labor Day Weekend and a spike in patient need, we are urging all eligible volunteer donors, especially Type O (Rh-positive or Rh-negative), to donate now. Additional platelet donations are also needed this week.
Please contact the Blood Center to schedule a time to give at a donor center or mobile blood drive near you as soon as possible. Call (800) 747-5401, or schedule online at www.bloodcenterimpact.org or via our Blood Center Impact App. Thank you!
Blood donations help save lives! But the rate of blood donation drops at the big summer holidays. That's why we're working in partnership with WMBD-TV/WYZZ to invite blood donors to help save lives the day after Labor Day.
You can make a difference for patients in our community by giving blood in the "Labor of Love" Blood Drive Tuesday, September 3 at Par-A-Dice Hotel and Casino in Peoria and the Hyatt Place Hotel in Normal.
Schedule online (Peoria). Or call (800) 747-5401. Walk-ins also welcome!
Schedule online (Normal). Or call (800) 747-5401. Walk-ins also welcome!
