Be the lifeline patients need. Give Blood.

Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. It is essential for surgeries, cancer treatment, chronic illnesses, and traumatic injuries. Whether a patient receives whole blood, red cells, platelets or plasma, this lifesaving care starts with one person making a generous donation. 

The Red Cross provides about 40% of our nation’s blood and blood components, all from generous volunteer donors. But supply can’t always meet demand because only about 3% of age-eligible people donate blood yearly. Each new donor helps us meet patient needs.

Join Mayor Dave Guerin and your village officials as we come together to help those in need.

  • When: Thursday, November 12th
  • Time: 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
  • Where: American Legion Post 335, 8664 W. Grand Avenue, River Grove

Donations are by appointment only. For an appointment, call 1-800-RED-CROSS or visit redcrossblood.org.

Remember, just one donation can potentially save up to three lives.
