Aurora, Ill. (April 12th, 2017) –  As the spring sun begins to shine, Heartland Blood Centers invites YOU to light up the lives of critically ill patients with a life-saving blood donation. 

Amy Smith, Director of Donor Recruitment at Heartland Blood Centers says, “Spring break, Holidays and family activities make this upcoming weekend a traditionally difficult time for blood collections, however, emergencies still occur and members of our community will need blood.  As the largest provider of blood in the Chicago land and Northwest Indiana area, we must be sure transfusions are ready and available for patients in the 74 hospitals we serve.”

To encourage your participation and to thank you for your support, this Friday, April 14th, Saturday, April 15th and Monday, April 17th, all mobile blood drive and center location donors will receive a $5 Subway gift card.  Scheduling is easy when you call 800-786-4483, text APPT to 444-999 or visit heartlandbc.org.

Heartland Blood Centers, established in 1943, is a not-for-profit, independent blood center serving the Greater Chicago area and Northwest Indiana providing service to 74 hospitals in 12 counties including Kane, McHenry, DeKalb, Will, DuPage, Cook, Grundy, Kendall, Lee, Ogle and LaSalle in Illinois, and Lake County in Indiana. Heartland operates under a volunteer donor system with the goal of collecting more than 160,000 units of blood annually. Heartland’s first commitment is to meet local blood needs and 100 percent of blood donated is returned to the communities served by Heartland. As participants in a nationwide resource sharing program, Heartland stands ready to assist other parts of the country during severe blood shortages, national emergencies and increased demands by the armed services.
