Chana UMC to host annual blood drive


CHANA – The Chana United Methodist Church, located at 606 Main St. in Chana is hosting their annual Community Blood Drive on Wednesday, May 27. Staff from the Rock River Valley Blood Center will draw blood between 2 and 6 p.m. In our current world situation, this year’s blood drive is more crucial than ever.

The center’s staff has stressed that all safety precautions will be in place, staff will be wearing masks, donors should wear masks, tables and chairs will be spaced 6 feet apart in all areas, and appointments will be needed to avoid crowding.

If you are at least 17 years old (16 with parental consent,) weigh at least 110 pounds and are in general good health, you should be eligible to donate blood. First time donors, please bring a photo I.D.

Be sure to have plenty to eat and drink before donating. All blood types are needed.
Please help replenish the blood supply. It costs nothing and takes little time but can be a priceless give to another human. Please join us in sharing the Gift of Life for our community. 

For more information or to schedule an appointment contact Carole at 815-595-4559 or visit RRVBC.org. Remember walk-ins will not be taken this year due to the social distancing restrictions.
