Blood drive Feb. 8 in Palatine
The office of state Rep. Tom Morrison will host a blood drive from 9 a.m. to 2 p. m. Tuesday, Feb. 8, in partnership with Palatine Township and the nonprofit Vitalant.
"Blood donation is much needed and will truly go far to help save a life, especially with the circumstances our state is in," said Morrison, a Republican from Palatine. "Reports have indicated that blood supply in Illinois is critically low. Donating blood doesn't take long but can have an immediate impact on multiple lives. I would encourage any local residents who are able to consider coming by on Feb. 8 to donate."
The event will be by appointment and held at the township offices, 721 S. Quentin Road in Palatine.
Safety precautions will be taken to keep both volunteers and donors safe during the event.
Food donations for the Palatine Township Food Pantry are also welcome.
