Taylorville High School is hosting a blood drive next Friday, January 18th. Sara Palacio with the Central Illinois Community Blood Center says that not only is it beneficial to donate blood, but it goes toward local hospitals.
Palacio knows that Taylorville has gone through a lot recently, and she says it is another great way to come together as a community.
Potential donors must be at least 17 years old, and photo ID is required. The blood drive will be held from 9 in the morning until 4 in the afternoon, and all donors will receive a free t-shirt.
