The drive is co-sponsored by Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center (MVRBC). Donors must be in good health, have a photo I.D., and be at least 17, or age 16 with parental consent.

“Winter can be challenging for health-care facilities when it comes to maintaining blood inventories, especially with an increase in cold weather-related injuries,” said Kathy Halstead, O’Fallon’s Manager of Volunteer Services. “Blood supplies are always in demand, but icy weather often keeps donors away, creating critical needs with the potential to delay scheduled surgeries and other treatments. We’re encouraging every healthy adult to take a few moments to help save local lives by donating blood this month.”
