Blood Donations Needed to Meet Seasonal Demand

Post Date:12/26/2017 9:47 AM

Blood DriveDuring the holiday season, blood donations are needed more than ever. Consider giving blood this week or during January,  National Blood Donor Month.

Donations may be made anywhere between three and 24 times each year, depending on the type of donation. There are basic qualifications that every donor must meet; most restrictions are because of medical and travel history. The actual donation process is quick, easy and painless.

Evanston Hospital's Blood Drive will be held January 8-31, 2018, at Evanston Hospital, 2650 Ridge Ave., Room 1957. Hours are Monday–Friday, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Extended hours are available Monday, Wednesday and the first Saturday of the month. To schedule an appointment, please call 847-570-2242 or email donateblood@northshore.org.  For more information about donating blood, visit northshore.org/donateblood.

 

You also may donate blood at the Evanston LifeSource location, 2436 Main St. View the  LifeSource flyer for Center hours; walk-ins are welcome.
