The Central Illinois Community Blood Center is holding a community blood drive next Friday at Taylorville High School. The drive will be from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the east gym at the high school.
Krista Jiroutek is a Recruitment Development Coordinator with the CICBC. She says all presenting donors will receive t-shirts, and there is extra reason for donors to come to the drive at THS.
The winter has taken its toll on the area’s blood supply according to Jiroutek.
Jiroutek encourages people to sign up to donate online at their website here.
