Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Centers’, 6574 E. Riverside Blvd in Loves Park, will host a blood drive from 9am to 1pm on Friday, August 31st, 2012. You can schedule an appointment to donate by calling 815-639-1239, but walk ins are welcome.
Registered donors will receive a voucher for an oil change with 5 quarts of oil (contact Tuffy for voucher details and appointments). In addition, anyone that donates blood at the RRVBC Perryville Donor Center, 3065 N. Perryville in Rockford, on Saturday, September 1 from 7am-1pm will also be offered the voucher.
“As we approach the Labor Day holiday, the blood supply will naturally decline as end of summer travel, school preparations and busy schedules take time leaving the blood supply lower than usual. Summertime activities also increase the demand for blood as accidents are often more likely to occur,” said Jennifer Bowman, Rock River Valley Blood Center.
The Rock River Valley Blood Center serves as a centralized, community blood center and is the sole provider of blood products and services to Beloit Health System, Edgerton Hospital and Health Services, FHN, Mercy Harvard Hospital, OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center, Rochelle Community Hospital, Rockford Health System, SwedishAmerican Health System and SwedishAmerican Medical Center—Belvidere. For more information or to make an appointment to donate blood, please call toll free 877-RRVBC-99.
