The Schaumburg Township Council of PTA's is helping Heartland sponsor a blood drive on Thursday, Oct. 23. It will be held from 1:30-6:30 p.m. in the board room at the School District 54 Administration Center, 524 E. Schaumburg Road in Schaumburg.
Anyone between the ages of 17 and 75 who weighs at least 110 pounds can participate.
A minimum of 500 pints of blood is needed every day for patients in area hospitals, according to Heartland. The Council of PTA's hosts blood drives each year to help meet these needs.
