"Save the Summer" by donating blood at drive on June 24

 

St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, in conjunction with the Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center (MVRBC), is hosting a blood drive on Tuesday, June 24, in the Millennium Room from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Convenient parking is available just outside the Southern Illinois Heart Institute building at 340 West Lincoln Street (the back of the hospital). To schedule a donation time call the MVRBC at 618-659-0542 or log on to www.bloodcenterimpact.org and use Sponsor Code: 10155. Walk-ins are welcome but appointments are suggested.

As a special incentive for this drive, MVRBC is giving away special holiday t-shirt with "Save Our Summer" theme to all presenting donors. 
A blood donor can give every eight weeks, or up to six times a year. All persons age 17 and up (or 16, with a signed parental permission form) who weigh at least 110 lbs. and are in general good health meet the basic eligibility requirements for blood donation.

MVRBC is proud to be the provider of blood products and services to 87 hospitals, including St. Elizabeth’s, in Illinois, Iowa, Missouri and Wisconsin. As inventory allows, MVRBC also provides additional units to hospitals across the country through a national resource sharing program.

Donate today to save a life. Please bring a photo I.D.
