Community Blood Drive at Village Hall - March 23, 2023

The Palatine Board of Health is hosting a blood drive on Thursday, March 23, 2023 from 12:00 until 6:00 p.m. at the Palatine Village Hall, 200 E. Wood Street in Room Community B. The blood drive will be conducted by Vitalant. 

Donating blood is one of the easiest ways to give back to your community. If you’ve never donated blood before, we encourage you to try! Every 2 seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood. This constant need for blood can only be met by generous donors like you, and when you give blood, you could save the life of a cancer patient or someone needing open-heart surgery. Remember, it's the blood on the shelves hospitals turn to in emergency situations. Make blood donations a part of your routine and schedule an appointment. Donate and track your cholesterol and blood pressure in your secure, online donor account for free.

The actual donation time for whole blood only takes about 10 minutes. The entire process, from registration to post-donation refreshments, takes about one hour. Consider saving time by registering in advance and completing your Fast Track Health History Questionnaire online the day of your donation.  You’ll save up to 20 minutes of total visit time at the drive. 

For more information on the donation process or to schedule an appointment, call 877-258-4825 or visit Vitalant. Appointments are encouraged but walk-in donors are always welcome.
