[ARCHIVED] Village of Romeoville Partners with Red Cross for Weekly Blood Drives

Blood Drive NF

The Red Cross, in partnership with the Village of Romeoville, will be holding weekly blood drives at the Romeoville Athletic & Event Center located at 55 Phelps Avenue.

“Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, there is a critical need for blood right now,” said Mayor John Noak. “We are happy to allow the Red Cross to use our building to stage these life saving drives.”

The Red Cross only collects blood from individuals who are healthy and feeling well at the time of donation. Donating blood does not impact or weaken the immune system. Type O donations are especially needed right now. The upcoming drives are:

•    Tuesday, April 14 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
•    Thursday, April 23 from noon – 6 p.m.
•    Thursday, April 30 from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.
•    Thursday, May 13 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
•    Thursday, May 21 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
•    Thursday, May 28 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Appointments are required in order to participate. If you are healthy, feeling well, and are eligible to give blood or platelets, go to or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) to schedule your appointment.

As a reminder, per the Governor Pritzker’s Stay at Home order, we encourage residents to stay home, stay safe and only leave your homes to perform essential activities (blood drives are essential) as outlined in the order. Please make sure that you are practicing all social distancing guidelines. Per the governor’s order we discourage any organized gatherings or events. The Village of Romeoville continues to provide things to do through our social media outlets. For additional information visit the state’s website at
