(GREENVILLE, IL) – HSHS Holy Family Hospital and Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center are hosting a blood drive on Thursday, April 5, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the hospital’s Fair Oaks Conference Room.
 
Healthy individuals may donate blood every eight weeks. To make it easy for donors wanting to make the biggest impact by giving whenever eligible, the Greenville hospital will host drives approximately every eight weeks in 2018. A future blood drive is planned for Thursday, June 7. To meet eligibility requirements, your most recent donation should not have been any later than February 8, 2018. The hospital’s last drive was February 1, so those who gave are eligible to give again.
 
Additional giving requirements include weighing at least 110 pounds, and being 17 years of age or older, (or 16 with a signed parental permission form available at www.bloodcenter.org). Please bring a photo ID, eat before arriving, and plan to spend approximately one hour. Appointments are requested, but walk-ins are always welcome. For an appointment, call 664-1230 ext. 8405 or visit www.bloodcenterimpact.org – sponsor code 60108.
