Community invited to donate blood March 16 at Glen Crest

Community members are invited to support the urgent need for blood by donating between 2 and 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 16, at Glen Crest Middle School, 725 Sheehan Avenue, Glen Ellyn.

Sign up to donate at: https://donate.illinois.versiti.org/donor/schedules/drive_schedule/5593072

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
