The Central Illinois Community Blood Center is hosting a community blood drive at Taylorville Memorial Hospital on December 28th. Libby Bair with the CICB said they encourage anybody who would like to donate blood to register for the blood drive ahead of time.
Bair said those who donate at the blood drive will receive something extra for their donation, as a special thank you for donating blood during the holiday season.
Bair also gave insight into the donation process for those who may not have donated blood before.
Donors who last gave blood on or before November 2nd are eligible to give blood at this drive. For any questions about eligibility, please call the Central Illinois Community Blood Center, at (800) 747-5401.
