Palos Heights Woman's Club members are hoping you'll help out by donating blood today. 

Heartland Blood Centers, a non-profit independent medical organization providing blood products to 49 Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana hospitals, asks all healthy individuals to “roll up their sleeves” and give blood this summer.  

“Summertime it is historically the time of year when blood centers across the country struggle with their blood inventory levels.  Heartland is no exception.” said Dennis Mestrich, President and CEO of Heartland Blood Centers.  Mestrich also states “Schools close for the summer, and workers go on vacation. This compounds our challenge to collect the blood needed to maintain safe and adequate blood inventories.” 

Today's event is at Palos Heights Rec Center, 6601 W. 127th Street in Palos Heights, from 3 to 7:30 p.m.  To sign up, contact
Nancy Clark-Jurek at 708-342-9771 or ciloveblt@aol.com, or Courtney Meredith from Heartland Blood Center 708-342-9771.
