The Village of Schaumburg encourages the public to participate in the final Community Blood Drive of 2021 that will take place from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 26 at The Barn, 231 S. Civic Drive in Schaumburg.

Interested blood donor participants should call 1-877-25VITAL (1-877-258-4825) or register online at www.vitalant.org and use sponsor code SH98. Appointments are highly recommended to reduce wait times; however, walk-ins are welcome.

 

Vitalant has a critical shortage of all blood types and urges donors that are eligible to donate blood now to replenish the blood supply.

All participants must wear a face covering at the event. Safe social distancing measures will be in place. If you are feeling unwell, please stay home.

Participating donors will receive a coupon for a pint of Culver's frozen custard and will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win one of four $25 Jewel gift cards.

Schaumburg partners with Vitalant to offer five blood drives a year for the community to help with blood donation. For more information about the village's community blood drives, please visit www.schaumburg.com/blooddrives, dial 311 in the village, or call the Nursing Division at (847) 923-3767.
