Leaf River United Methodist Church to host blood drive on June 29

The Leaf River United Methodist Church is hosting a Community Blood Drive on Monday, June 29. Staff from the Rock River Valley Blood Center will draw blood between 1- 6 p.m.

Donations of blood are needed. There is no substitute for blood, and local patients rely on generous donors to supply the need.

If you are at least 17 years old (16 years old with parental consent), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in general good health, you should be eligible to donate blood.

One in three people will need blood and you never know when you or someone you love might be the one. 

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, organizers must limit the number of people who are arriving throughout the blood drive. Donors are asked to call to schedule an appointment.

For more information or to schedule an appointment, contact Laura at 815-738-2508 or 815-276-5773 (call or text), or email

Potential donors can also contact the Rock River Valley Blood Center directly at 815-965-8751, toll free at 877-RRVBC-99 or on the web at
