The Central Illinois Community Blood Center has been hosting a number of area blood drives recently, and has one planned for Taylorville on February 23rd. The CICBC will be at Fellowship Hall at 1500 West Franklin street taking blood donations that will then be given to local hospitals.
Potential donors must be at least 17 years old, or 16 with parental permission, and weigh more than 110 pounds. A photo I.D. is required, and individuals with diabetes or controlled high blood pressure can still be accepted as eligible donors.
The Central Illinois Community Blood Center is the exclusive provider of blood to both Pana Community Hospital and Taylorville Memorial Hospital. If you’d like to schedule an appointment to donate, call 217-623-5631.
