The Central Illinois Community Blood Center is continuing to recover from the normal shortage of blood this time of year, and they will be hosting a community blood drive in Stonington Thursday. The bloodmobile will be located at 304 North Elm Street in Stonington for people to donate blood between 4 and 7 p.m.
CICBC Donor Relations Consultant Caleb Parker says it does not take much of your time to donate the much needed blood.
Parker says anyone that shows up to donate has a chance to win a vacation package of the winner’s choice.
Parker says it is important to have a good meal and drink plenty of fluids before and after donating blood to keep you feeling your best.
