Red Cross Blood Drive to be held April 29 at Highland Community College

FREEPORT—Highland Community College will host a Red Cross Blood Drive from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, April 29, in the Student Conference Center, room H-201. This event is sponsored by the HCC Support Staff, Phi Theta Kappa chapter, and Alpha Sigma Lambda of Columbia College.

Every day more than 21,000 people receive blood from an American Red Cross donor. It's the generosity of volunteer blood donors on which patients rely to get the lifesaving blood products they need.

The need for blood is increasing. Blood and platelet donations to your local Red Cross are down, while hospital usage is increasing. The need to meet your blood drive collection goals is greater now than it has been in recent years.

Remember to eat a healthy meal and drink plenty of water prior to donating. A photo ID is needed and appointments are preferred, but walk-ins are welcome. Contact Rhonda Perry at or 815.599.3442 to schedule an appointment.
