Can you help save lives? If you are at least 17 years old and healthy, please donate blood on Friday, January 24, from 11a.m.-3 p.m., at the O’Fallon Municipal Centre (City Hall), 100 North Main Street, O’Fallon 63366. O’Fallon’s National Volunteer Donor Month Blood Drive is co-sponsored by the City of O’Fallon and the Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center. Refreshments will be served immediately following donations. Donors must show a photo I.D.

“Peoples’ lives depend on volunteer blood donors,” said Kathy Halstead, O’Fallon’s Manager of Volunteer Services. “I met with the representative from Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center, who told me that the blood supply is down really low in our area. The recent snowstorms have resulted in the cancellation of numerous blood drives, and those that were held had a drastic reduction in the number of donors able to come out. And the impact on our local blood supplies will only increase as winter continues.”
