Blood drive scheduled at Edgebrook

The Shops of Edgebrook and the Rock River Valley Blood Center will hold a blood drive from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 4. The Blood Bank is anxious for EVERY type of blood.

Each merchant in the center has a sign-up sheet that will assist in scheduling a pre-set appointment when donors can give. Of course, walk-ins are always welcome to the Bloodmobile. Potential donors may also call the Edgebrook office at 226-0212 to schedule an appointment for the day of the drive.

The Rock River Valley Blood Center has the sole responsibility to have blood available for patients in our area hospitals in Rockford, Rochelle, Belvidere, Freeport, Harvard, Edgerton and Beloit. To meet these needs, 700 donations per week are required.

Giving the “Gift of Life” is easy. There are lots of reasons to give—but nothing more important than it’s safe, it’s simple and it saves lives. Remember, someday it could be the life of a relative or friend who needs it.
