(BREESE, IL) – HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Breese and Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center is hosting a blood drive on Monday, November 13, from 12 noon until 4:30 p.m. in the hospital’s Heritage Room.
As a special thank you for making time in your busy schedule, all presenting donors will receive a choice of a long-sleeve LIFESAVER T-shirt or a $10 Amazon gift card or a $5 plastic gift card to Starbucks, Subway or Target while supplies last.
Healthy individuals may donate blood every 8 weeks.

Future blood drives are planned for January 11 and March 8, 2018. To meet eligibility requirements, your most recent donation should not have been any later than September 18, 2017.
