Mayor Stahura’s Annual Blood Drive

Mayor Stahura’s Annual Blood Drive will be held at the Whiting Community Center on Friday, October 14, 2011 from 10 AM to 2 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 donations will be taken in the Social Room at the Community Center. If you are considering donating, please call Kathy Kazmierski at 219-659-7700 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 are ones Photo ID and knowledge of personal medications for some screening questions. This is your chance to make a difference and become a hero! Give the “Gift of Life”. Every donor will receive a coupon for a FREE quart of Oberweis Ice Cream. Mark your calendars.
