They need blood now more than ever. Let's all do our part to help out. Walk-Ins are always welcome and you do not need an appointment to attend. If you would like to schedule an appointment you can always call the firehouse at 815-734-4322. Remember your single donation can help save up to three lives! ***Face masks are required*** ***Social distancing will be required*** ***If you don't feel well, please stay home.*** Message from the RRVBC: The time to donate is now. Blood shortages are occurring in the U.S. and we are working to prevent shortages locally. We are monitoring credible health agencies for updates on COVID-19 and are responding accordingly. There is no known risk to the safety of the nation’s blood supply except for lack of donations and there are no reports of the spread of this respiratory virus, by blood transfusion. Giving blood is not a risk for donors to contract COVID-19. Giving blood is critical to ensure an adequate supply to meet patient needs. Social distancing guidelines will be followed carefully.
