Community invited to donate blood on November 3 at Glen Crest

Six hundred donors are needed each day to keep up with the current demand for blood. You can help by donating between 2 and 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 3, at Glen Crest Middle School, 725 Sheehan Avenue, Glen Ellyn.

Sign up to donate at: https://donate.illinois.versiti.org/donor/schedules/drive_schedule/5580902

The blood drive will follow proper social distancing guidelines to allow the community to safely donate. All staff and visitors will wear masks.

You can also call or text your name and desired time to Camille from Versiti Blood Center of Illinois at (847) 305-9998 to be added to the schedule.

A photo ID is required to donate blood. The drive is open to anyone in the community.

Blood donation is a simple four-step process: registration, medical history, donation, and refreshment. Blood donation usually takes about 10 to 12 minutes. Donors can speed up the process by using VersiPASS, which allows them to fill out basic medical screening questions from their phone the morning of their donation. You can learn more about VersiPASS here: www.versiti.org/versipass/illinois
