The HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital will be hosting a blood drive on the south side of the Hospital in Clasroom A from 10AM-2PM on Friday June 21st. One donation can save up to three lives and it’s a safe simple procedure that takes about 45 minutes to an hour. Marketing Director Kristy Gordon says that this blood drive is important, because most of the blood that Good Shepherd Hospital receives is from Springfield.
Potential donors must be at least 17 years old, in good health and weigh at least 110 pounds. Gordon encourages people to call or go to www.bloodcenterimpact.org for more information.
An identification card is required to donate. To sign up for a donation time, contact 241-7550.
