Winter Storm Impacting Donations in our Service Region

A winter storm impacting Central and Southern Illinois and the St. Louis region has led to cancellation of multiple blood drives. With more snow and ice in the forecast, additional donors are needed to make up for weather-related losses in the days leading up to Thanksgiving. The early winter storm comes at a time when the Blood Center is working to make up for an expected decrease in donations due to the holiday.

For information on local Donor Centers and blood drives, please call (800) 747-5401, visit, or use the Blood Center’s IMPACT mobile app.
