Lombard Blood Drives Collect More than 80 Pints
January is National Blood Donor Month, a time to honor voluntary blood donors and encourage more people to donate blood and help save lives.
The Village of Lombard is thanking donors for their life-saving blood donations at the Village's Winter Blood Drive, and other local community blood drives this month. Through these blood drives, a total of 81 pints were collected, with the combined potential to save up to 243 lives. Since the program began in 1988, Lombard has held 267 blood drives which collected more than 17,800 units, potentially saving up to 53,463 lives.
