Community Blood Bank Blood Drive in Sibley

January 23 @ 10:00am - 5:00pm

Osceola Community Hospital and Community Blood Bank are coming together to ensure an adequate blood supply for the community through the first months of 2019 by hosting a community blood drive on Wednesday, January 23 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm and 2:30 pm to 5:00 pm.      

“Volunteers coming forward to donate blood is the only way to secure the blood supply for the Sibley area.  Giving blood with Community Blood Bank will directly impact the lives of patients in need at Osceloa Community Hospital.  Community Blood Bank is the only local blood source and is not associated with other blood bank entities, that do not provide blood to the community,” states Ken Versteeg, Executive Director, Community Blood Bank.  “With people being treated for cancer, surgery cases and in expected traumas occurring, data suggests an increase in usage as we go through the winter season.”

Donors must be at least 17 years old (16 years old with a signed parent consent form), weigh 110 lbs or more and be in good general health.  It is recommended that a person eat and drink plenty of fluids prior to donating blood.  Please bring an ID with you at the time of donation.  For more information log onto www.cbblifeblood.org, call Community Blood Bank at 1-877-877-3070 or call Osceola Community Hospital at 712-754-2574.

Community Blood Bank is not affiliated with other blood bank organizations and takes pride in being a self-sufficient organization, thanks to the generosity of our local blood donors.
