Donate blood at Edgebrook

The Shops of Edgebrook, in partnership with FOX-39, are demonstrating their commitment to maintaining area blood supply by sponsoring a blood drive at The Shops of Edgebrook from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 9, at 1639 N. Alpine Rd.

Blood mobile will be in front of Ace Hardware. There are three ways to donate: 1) Walk-ins are welcome, 2) schedule an appointment by calling the Rock River Valley Blood Center, 965-8751, or 3) stop in at any of the Shops of Edgebrook to schedule your appointment for Aug. 9.

Each day, someone in the community is in dire need of a blood transfusion. People with a life-threatening illness or injury depend on volunteer blood donors to maintain a safe, adequate supply of blood. For many reasons, the number of available donors in our area is running desperately low.

People are encouraged to support this blood drive. Consider making a donation. Encourage your employees and customers. Anyone interested in becoming a donor should call the Rock River Valley Blood Center at 965-8751.
