The Central Illinois Community Blood Center’s Bloodmobile will be making it’s way to Taylorville on January 25th for a community blood drive on that date. Libby Bair, Donor Relations Consultant at the CICBC gave some details on the drive, and also said how the Blood Center is still in the process of rebounding from reduced donations that typically occur during the holiday season.
The donation process typically takes about 45 minutes to an hour, and individuals with diabetes or controlled high blood pressure can be accepted as eligible donors. Bair gave some other guidelines on potential donor eligibility.
If you’d like to donate, you can contact the Community Blood Center or visit bloodcenterimpact.org, and use the code 60145 to locate the drive.
