(HIGHLAND, IL) – HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital Highland and Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center are hosting a blood drive on Wednesday, February 7, from 2:00 until 6:00 p.m. in the hospital’s Ungacta Conference Center.
 
As a special thank you for making time in your busy schedule, all presenting donors will receive a green “Give a Pint” St. Patrick’s Day T-shirt.
 
Healthy individuals may donate blood every eight weeks. To make it easy for donors wanting to make the biggest impact by giving whenever eligible, HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital in Highland hosts drives approximately every eight weeks in 2018. A future blood drive is planned for Wednesday, April 11 from 2:00 – 6:00 p.m. To meet eligibility requirements, your most recent donation should not have been any later than December 13, 2017. The hospital’s last drive was December 6, 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.
