As Summer comes to a close, Fall is moving in, and that poses as good news for blood centers and blood banks because people will get back into their routine of donating blood every 6 weeks. Although people will donate blood more often once Fall hits, blood banks, such as the Central Illinois Community Blood Center will still need to recover from their lack of donations from the past few months. Libby Bair, Donor Relations Consultant with the Central Illinois Community Blood Center, said that CICBC is hoping to recover as fast as possible and they know the blood drive in Taylorville on Wednesday will help.
Bair also mentioned the CICBC's IMPACT Program where people can earn points to trade in for perks such as t-shirts, hoodies, and even earbuds.
CICBC will be at Taylorville Memorial Hospital from 11:00-6:00 on Wednesday, and for more information, call 217-753-1530 or visit their website at bloodcenterimpact.com. Bair appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
