Main Street, Sandwich. Heartland Blood Centers is currently low on blood donations and urgently needs blood donations now. Donating blood is completely safe, and organizations like Heartland Blood Centers rely on volunteers for support. Donors should eat a healthy meal and drink plenty of fluids before donating. A photo ID is required for donation. Parking is available in the Valley West Medical Office Building parking lot. Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are preferred. Appointments can be made by calling Sue Morgan at 815.498.9467 or online by visiting www.heartlandbc.org.

Heartland Blood Centers announces the Students Saving Lives Scholarship program. This opportunity offers the chance for 17 to 21-year-old blood donors to win one of five $1,000 scholarships provided by Heartland Blood Centers. The eligible student must make one successful blood donation at a Heartland Blood Centers mobile blood drive or center location between Jan. 2 and May 31, 2015. Additional entries can be presented on behalf of the student donor by eligible family and friends who also make a blood donation during the program period. The more entries submitted, the better the chances of winning. Students Saving Lives Scholarship is a win-win for the hospitals and patients served by Heartland and for the students who participate. To qualify for scholarship entry, the donors must download a scholarship form at www.heartlandbc.org and present the form at the time of their donation.

As a thank-you for being a life-saving donor, donors earn points each time they donate blood for gift cards and premium gifts in the online Heartland Blood Centers store as part of the Warm Hearts Club. Gift cards and gifts are mailed free of charge to donors’ homes.
