Community Blood Services of Illinois offering residents chance to win new SUV

URBANA - Community Blood Services of Illinois is offering central Illinois residents who donate blood this summer the chance to win a 2015 Jeep Patriot SUV.

Officials say all individuals who register to give blood at CBSI Donor Centers or mobile blood drives between May 22 and September 5 will be entered into a drawing for the SUV.  According to CBSI officials, the drawing is designed to help boost the area's blood supply, which can drop by as much as 20 percent in the summer months.

In addition to being entered in the drawing, those who donate blood during this promotion will also receive double points to CBSI's IMPACT Donor Loyalty Store on certain days.  For more information about the drawing, visit  To schedule an appointment to donate blood, call (217) 367-2202 or visit
