Blood Drive Coming Up In Sibley The Day Before Thanksgiving

Sibley, Iowa — The Sioux Falls Community Bloodmobile will be holding their next blood drive on Wednesday, November 22nd, 2023 at the Osceola Regional Health Center in Sibley. For those of you keeping track, that’s the day before Thanksgiving Day.

Organizers of the drive ask you to take some time out of your day and give what they call “the gift of life.” They say the life you save may be someone you know.

If you want to give, you are asked to call the Osceola Regional Health Center to make an appointment at 712-754-5358, as the blood drive will be by appointment only. All donors must be at least 16 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health. You can donate blood every 56 days.

Community Blood Bank Executive Director Ken Ver Steeg tells us it’s a quick process.

The Community Blood Bank is the sole supplier of all blood and blood products for Osceola Regional Health Center, and most other hospitals in our area.

They also remind you that no hospitals in our area, including Osceola Regional Health Center receive any blood or blood products from the American Red Cross.
