Mayor Joe Stahura’s Annual Blood Drive

The Mayor’s Blood Drive will be held at the Community Center on Saturday, September 8th from 8 AM to 1 PM. Heartland Blood Centers has partnered with the City of Whiting to enable the community to participate in this exceptionally rewarding program. Blood donors are literally giving a living part of themselves to aid another person. Please take advantage of this opportunity to realize the hero that lives in all of us. Heartland’s blood donations end up here in Northwest Indiana. The Blood Drive donations will be taken in the Community Center Social Room. If you are considering donating, please call Kathy Kazmierski at 659-7704, ext. 232 to set up your appointment. The donation process is 20 minutes and Heartland can accommodate 6 donors each 20 minute interval, so the process moves quickly. All that is required at the donation appointment is a photo ID and knowledge of personal medications for some screening questions. This is your chance to make a difference and become a hero! Mark your calendars. EVERY DONOR WILL RECEIVE COUPONS FOR TWO FREE QUARTS OF OBERWEIS ICE CREAM!!
