High school football kicks off Friday night, but before the big game Friday, the Central Illinois Community Blood Center will be having a blood drive in Taylorville. The Bloodmobile will be outside of the U.S. Bank building on the Taylorville Square from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday.
Caleb Parker is a Donor Relations Coordinator with the CICBC. He says with football season kicking off, presenting donors will receive a special gift for donating Friday.
Parker says the summer has taken its toll on the CICBC’s blood supply. He reminds everyone to bring a photo ID if you come to donate blood, and make sure to eat and drink before and after you donate to keep you feeling your best.
