ROCHELLE – Rock River Valley Blood Center will host a blood drive from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Aug. 12 at Rochelle United Methodist Church in Hicks Hall at 709 4th Ave.

This will create a great opportunity to help stock the shelves with needed products for patients in need at our local hospitals. All donors are welcome: current donors, new donors and all blood types!

Donors can make appointments online at rrvbc.org or by calling 815-965-8751. Walk-ins are also welcome. (The hyperlink can go to your specific event schedule, which you can find here: https://donor.rrvbc.org/donor/schedules/drive_schedule/54122).

The blood center needs to see 800 donors per week as the only provider of blood products and services to 13 regional hospitals in Illinois and Wisconsin.

If you’re a first-time donor, please bring a photo ID. You can donate whole blood every 56 days. The process is safe and simple, and one unit can save up to three lives.
