Heartland announces January blood drives

In celebration of January National Blood Donor Month, Aurora-based Heartland Blood Centers asks healthy members of the community to donate blood. Jan. is typically the highest transfusion month of the year because patients who can delay their non-emergency surgeries and treatments until after the holidays usually do.

“Help us celebrate January National Blood Donor Month by being one of the 600 blood donors needed every day to meet the needs of the community,” said Dennis Mestrich, CEO and president of Heartland Blood Centers.

Call Heartland Blood Centers at 1-800-7TO-GIVE or schedule an appointment online and learn more about the Warm Hearts Club at www.heartlandbc.org.

All donors receive free mini-medical exams on site and information about their temperature, pulse rate, blood pressure and hemoglobin level.

To be a blood donor, individuals must be at least 17 years old, or 16 with written parental permission; weigh at least 110 pounds; be symptom free of cold, flu and allergies; and be in general good health. Donors who have traveled outside the United States within the past 12 months should contact Heartland to determine eligibility.
