St. John's Lutheran Church, Algonquin, has a blood drive scheduled Sunday from 8:00 am to 12:30 pm in the church's activity center. Walk-in donors are welcome but organizers say pre-registration is preferred.
http://www.heartlandbc.org would be the place to do that. Sue Stroup at
(847) 458-6857 has the answers to questions about the drive and donor qualifications.
“Every two seconds, someone needs blood. It only takes about an hour of your time to make a huge difference in someone’s life,” said Ann McKanna, Vice President of New Business and Development with Heartland Blood Centers. “It is important to build up a strong blood inventory now to help us get through the summer months, when blood donations typically are lower.”
If donors can't make the drive at St. John's, Algonquin's Wal-Mart has another drive set May 24 from 3:00 to 7:00 pm.
