HSHS St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital is sponsoring a Community Blood Serviced of Illinois (CBSI) blood drive in the hospital Auditorium on Thursday, August 18 from 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Community Blood Services of Illinois supplies 100 percent of all blood for patients at St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital. To those who generously donate, thank you and please continue to give, and if you’ve never donated, please consider becoming a life-saving donor.
Summer is a challenging time when the rate of blood donations drops significantly. Although an estimated 38 percent of the U.S. population is eligible to donate blood at any given time, less than 10% of that eligible population actually does each year.
From May 1 to September 30, all presenting donors at donor centers and mobile blood drives will be automatically entered in a drawing to win a NEW Ford Fiesta!
Please bring a photo ID to donate. Donors may schedule an appointment online on Community Blood Services website at www.bloodcenterimpact.org. Use Group Sponsor Code 70739 when scheduling online. Donors earn points every time you donate with IMPACT, their donor loyalty program. You also earn bonus points when you make your appointment online. Points may be redeemed at their online store.
