Three blood drives coming to Wheaton in October

WHEATON – Heartland Blood Centers will host three blood drives in October for Wheaton residents, according to a news release from the nonprofit.

Open to all people ages 17 or older, the blood drives are part of the Red Cord Program, which honors students who donate blood six or more times during their high school careers by giving them a red cord for their graduation caps.

Blood donors must weigh at least 110 pounds, be symptom-free of cold, flu and allergies and be in general good health. Those who have traveled in the past 12 months should contact Heartland at 1-800-7TO-GIVE or visit heartlandbc.org to determine eligibility.

Future blood drive dates and locations include:

• 3:30 to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 3 at St. Michael Catholic Church at 310 S. Wheaton Ave.

• 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Oct. 20 at First Presbyterian at 715 N. Carlton St.

• 3:30 to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 21 at Aldersgate United Methodist Church at 1753 S. Blanchard St.
