Blood is traditionally in short supply during the winter months due to the holidays, travel schedules, inclement weather and illness. January, in particular, is a difficult month for blood centers to collect blood donations. A reduction in turnout can put our nation’s blood inventory at a critical low.
January has been designated as National Blood Donor Month (NBDM) to encourage donors to give or pledge to give blood.
In honor of National Donor Month, the Geneva Park District's Stephen D. Persinger Recreation Center will host a blood drive, Monday, January 28, 2013. Heartland Blood Center's Mobile Unit will collect donations from 8 to 11 am. Walk-ins welcome.
Stephen D. Persinger Recreation Center is located at 3507 Kaneville Road, Geneva. To schedule your appointment, call 630.232.4542 or 630.232.4501.
