Blood Drive

CHAMPAIGN — In an effort to meet the current demand for blood donations, State Senator Scott Bennett (D-Champaign) is partnering with the Community Blood Services of Illinois to host two weeklong blood drives in Champaign and Danville.

“The COVID-19 crisis has taken a toll on the state’s blood supply so we need healthy and willing residents to step up to help replenish its stores,” Bennett said. “This is a great opportunity for people to safely help their neighbors and feel more connected to their community during these challenging times.”

The blood drives will take place Tuesday, Sept. 8 through Saturday, Sept. 12 at the Urbana Donor Center, located at 1408 W. University Ave. in Urbana, and the Danville Elks Donor Center, located at 300 E. Liberty Lane in Danville. Donation hours at the Urbana location can be found here, and Danville here.

Donor centers are following the recommendations from local, state and federal health agencies to keep staff, volunteers and donors safe. Appointments and masks will be required, and chairs in all areas will be at least six feet apart.

Healthy and eligible candidates can schedule an appointment to donate in Urbana at https://ilsendems.co/C-UBloodDrive or in Danville at https://ilsendems.co/DanvilleBloodDrive. All presenting donors will receive a voucher for their choice of a $10 gift card, which can be redeemed through Sept. 20.

For more information, Bennett urges residents to contact his Champaign office at 217-355-5252 or his Danville office at 217-442-5252. Those with questions can also visit his website, SenatorBennett.com.
