The Central Illinois Community Blood Center is continuing their 2017 blood drive efforts with another blood drive in the area. Pana Community Hospital will host a community blood drive on March 8th from 1 until 7 held at the First United Methodist Church in Pana.
Potential donors must be at least 17 years old, or 16 with parental permission, and weigh more than 110 pounds. A photo I.D. is required, and individuals with diabetes or controlled high blood pressure can still be accepted as eligible donors.
The Central Illinois Community Blood Center is the exclusive provider of blood to both Pana Community Hospital and Taylorville Memorial Hospital. If you’d like to schedule an appointment to donate, call 217-623-5631.
