Taylorville Memorial Hospital is hosting a blood drive on Thursday, June 29 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. for the Central Illinois Community Blood Center. The hospital’s goal is 96 units of blood collected from the drive, and they are looking for anyone who can donate to do so.
Taylorville Memorial Hospital Blood Drive Coordinator Pat Anderson says there is no cost to donate other than your time. She says all blood collected will stay in the area.
Anderson talks about what is important to do before donating and what to bring when you come to donate.
Anderson says you can schedule an appointment by calling her at 237-2214 or 827-1490.
