Sioux Valley Vermillion Hospital will host blood drive on July 26 Community Blood Bank�s bloodmobile will be holding a blood drive at the Sioux Valley Vermillion Hospital on Tuesday, July 26 from 1 to 3:30 p.m. Residents are encouraged to donate blood, save a life and support the local blood supply.
During the summer months the blood supply for the local communities are challenged due to an increase usage of blood and lower than normal donations. The only way to insure an adequate blood supply is through volunteer donors to donate with Community Blood Bank. One donation will save up to three people�s lives. It only takes 20 to 25 minutes to make a difference.
Community Blood Bank is the sole provider of blood and blood products to Sioux Valley Vermillion Hospital. Donors must be at least 17 years old, weigh 110 pounds or more and be in good general health the day of the donation. Please bring an I.D. with you. For more information or to make an appointment call 624-2611. Walk-ins are welcome.
