MFD to Host Winter Blood Drive

The Mundelein Fire Department and Vitalent are hosting a winter blood drive at the MFD Fire Station 1-1000 N. Midlothian Road on Saturday, January 18 from 9 a.m.-3 .pm. Appointments are available and walk-ins are always welcome. To schedule an appointment please call 1-877-258-4825 or visit www.vitalant.org and use Group Code MN10. To prepare for your donation eat well, stay hydrated, and bring your ID. All participating donors will receive a FREE sub sandwich coupon courtesy of Firehouse Subs! Coupons can be used at all Chicagoland locations!

Millions of patients—and their families—count on generous volunteer blood donors and our dedicated staff to make sure lifesaving blood always is available.

Every day in the U.S., patients in hospitals, surgical centers and emergency treatment facilities need approximately:

• 36,000 units of red blood cells
• 7,000 units of platelets
• 10,000 units of plasma

About 6.8 million volunteers give blood in the U.S., which is nearly 26 percent fewer donors than at the beginning of this decade. The result is nearly 4.2 million fewer donations each year. Together, we can reverse this trend and help more people realize their life-transforming potential.
