Over the past three weeks, the Blood Center has been forced to cancel dozens of blood drives (68, and counting) leading to a loss of more than 2200 donations due to record cold tempatures, snow, and ice.
If you are able to safely travel to donate blood this week, please do. To find a donation location near you, call (800) 747-5401, visit www.bloodcenterimpact.org, or use the Blood Center’s IMPACT mobile app.
With another winter storm on the way to portions of our service region, we will continue to provide information on the impact of winter weather at www.bloodcenter.org/weather.
In addition to its Davenport headquarters, the Blood Center has regional administrative offices in Springfield, IL (operating as Central Illinois Community Blood Center), Urbana, IL (operating as Community Blood Services of Illinois); Ottumwa, IA and the Maryland Heights, MO.
