CICBC hosting blood drive in Decatur

Posted: Updated:

DECATUR - In an effort to combat a seasonal decline in donations, Central Illinois Community Blood Center officials say they will host a blood drive in Decatur on August 27.

The blood drive will be held at Hope Academy from 4:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.  Anyone who donates at this event, or any other CICBC drive through September 5, will be entered into a contest for a chance to win a 2015 Jeep Patriot SUV.

Blood donated at these events are used at more than 90 hospitals throughout the Midwest, including Decatur Memorial Hospital and HSHS St. Mary's Hospital.  For more information, or to set up an appointment to donate, call (217) 424-3333 or visit www.bloodcenterimpact.org.
