Rock River Valley Blood Center Blood Donation

WHEN: Saturday, August 15 (7a.m. - 1 p.m.)
WHERE: Rock River Valley Blood Center

Giving blood is an easy, meaningful way to make a difference. In fact, this simple gift can enhance the lives of up to three people. Giving blood only takes about one relaxing hour, and we - and your body - do all of the work. If you donate blood at one of the two Rock River Valley Blood Center locations on Rockford Day, you will receive a free cheddar fry from Beefaroo, and the first 25 donors (at each location) will receive a bag of Mrs. Fisher's chips! And everyone will be entered to win a gift basket from Velvet Robot Coffee and Mrs. Fisher's Chips.

One Body Collaboratives have recently launched as a way for our community to easily find needs they can meet by individuals and families that are facing a hardship. On 815 Day we will be promoting all of the needs through our Facebook Page ( that individuals can meet for their neighbors in the 815! One thing we know for sure is that the 815 is a generous community! There are many ways big and small that anyone can help!
