Give blood and be the lifeline patients need

The American Red Cross is partnering with Northwest Community Healthcare (NCH) to host a blood drive on Wednesday, November 27 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the hospital, 800 West Central Road in Arlington Heights. The drive will take place in Conference Room 6/7, across from the NCH Auditorium.


Donors are instructed to bring a photo ID or a blood donor card, or two other forms of identification. Eat a healthy meal and drink an extra 16 oz. of water and fluids prior to giving blood.

Incentives for donating include a free long-sleeved T-shirt which will be given out while supplies last, and a $5 Amazon gift card by email from American Red Cross partner Suburban Propane.
