Morrisonville United Methodist Church is hosting a community blood drive from 3 to 6:30 p.m. this Thursday.
Libby Bair is a Donor Relations Consultant for the Central Illinois Community Blood Center. She says the needs for blood this time of year is especially high.
She says that all presenting donors will be entered into a drawing for a $2,500 vacation package to anywhere the winner would like to go.
The Central Illinois Community Blood Center is the only provider of blood for Taylorville Memorial Hospital and Pana Community Hospital. She says donors should know that their blood will stay in the community.
If you have any questions or would like to donate, you can contact the blood center at 241-7550.
