Drive returns next week
Fairbury residents are asked to roll up their sleeves once again as the American Red Cross Bloodmobile returns to the fire station next week.
The bloodmobile will be held Wednesday, April 22 from 11:30-5:30 on west Locust Street which is the same location as last month’s event. Donors must have an appointment as walk-ins will not be allowed.
“Donors must wear a mask this time,” drive coordinator Barb Taylor told Fairbury News.
To make an appointment, visit www.redcrossblood.org or call 815-848-4121.
Taylor said last month’s drive was successful as they collected 80 units when they normally get 50 or 60. She is hoping for the same or better results this time around.
