Call goes out for blood donors

LifeSource is looking for blood donors to meet the needs of trauma victims and others.
 
The measured snowfall on Monday had a negative impact on blood donations.
 
“We’re asking all eligible donors to make a donation appointment now to help ensure blood products are available for patients in need,” said LifeSource Executive Director Eva Quinley.
 
LifeSource community donor centers are at 2 River Plaza in Lansing and 11120 W. 179th St. in Orland Park.
 
LifeSource has an immediate need for donors with type O negative blood because it can help patients with any blood type. A single car accident victim can require as many as 100 pints of blood, so O negative donors are needed to donate often, she said.
 
Blood donors must be at least 18 years old. With parental consent, 16- and 17-year-olds can also donate. 
 
For information on blood donations, or to make an appointment, contact LifeSource at 877-543-3768 or visit www.lifesource.org.

About Us

A great community deserves a great newspaper. The HF Chronicle was created in June 2014 as the Homewood Chronicle (but we soon realized Homewood and Flossmoor are so interconnected that it makes better sense to cover both villages). Our mission is to chronicle the life of our community — news by, for, and about the people of Homewood and Flossmoor, Illinois.
