Bloodmobile Coming Friday to Elgin

The Red Cross Bloodmobile will be making another stop in Elgin this week.
The bloodmobile will be at the KC Hall on Friday, Aug. 10 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“If every drive scheduled ‘came in’ with two extra units of blood, we’d have no shortage,” said Amy Brown with the Red Cross.
The Red Cross has an emergency need for blood donors of all blood types. In June, blood donations were down more than 10 percent across the country, with 50,000 fewer pints of blood than expected.
The Red Cross typically sees a decline in blood donations during the summer months because blood donors are busy with seasonal activities and overlook donating blood.
