Village of Romeoville Blood Drive Reaches 1,000 Unit Collection Milestone

The Village of Romeoville, Illinois started hosting regular blood drives for the American Red Cross when the global pandemic began in early 2020. They stepped up to take after when the Red Cross saw an increased need for blood donors to help sustain local hospitals during those days of uncertainty.

After having blood drives held regularly over the past two years, 1,021 units of blood have been collected!

On Monday, March 14 the momentous 1,000th unit of blood was donated by long-time and regular donor Kathleen Gubbins.

Thank you to the Village of Romeoville and community for supporting these blood drives and helping us achieve moments like this.
