The Central Illinois Community Blood Center is bringing the Bloodmobile to Taylorville on August 25th to collect much needed blood for area hospitals. The Bloodmobile will be outside the U.S. Bank building on the Taylorville Square from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the 25th.
CICBC Donor Relations Coordinator Caleb Parker says this summer has taken its toll on the blood supply.
With high school football kicking off that night with Taylorville’s home opener against Mt. Vernon, Parker says each presenting donor can get their choice of a football-themed t-shirt. One of those t-shirt options will be purple and gold to represent the Tornadoes.
