News Release

Marshall-Putnam 4-H Federation Blood Drive

NEWS RELEASE – SUBMITTED BY Anne Scheel

UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS EXTENSION – Bureau, LaSalle, Marshall, Putnam Unit

The Marshall-Putnam 4-H Federation would like to continue to sponsor a blood drive during the 4-H Show in July. The blood drive was started[SA1]  in honor of several 4-H Alumni who were in a serious car accident several years ago, requiring a blood transfusion during their recovery. The blood drive is a great way to recognize the 4-H alumni as well as provide support for the American Red Cross.

 

Over the last few years the amount of blood donors has subsided at our event.  In order for us to continue this tradition, the American Red Cross is requiring in advance a list of committed donors. We need to make it worth their time to come to Henry for a blood drive. If we have meet the minimum number of donors the blood drive will take place during our 4-H Show the week of July 16-19, 2018 at the Marshall Putnam Fairgrounds.

 

We are asking you to contact the University of Illinois Extension office by May 4, 2018 to be placed on our donor list for us to send to the American Red Cross. You can phone 309-364-2356 or email amscheel@illinois.edu with your intent to participate. Thank you in advance for your support in the event.

If you need a reasonable accommodation, please indicate when registering.

For more information call University of Illinois Extension – Bureau, LaSalle, Marshall, Putnam Unit Office at 815-224-0889. Extension offices are located in Princeton, Ottawa, Henry and in Oglesby on the IVCC campus.
