The Will County State’s Attorney’s Office is partnering with Heartland Blood Centers and local mom Jennifer Babec during National Blood Donor Appreciation Month to host a community blood drive from 7 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Thursday, January 14.

The Taylor Babec Community Blood Drive will be held at the Will County State’s Attorney’s Office, 121 N. Chicago St., in downtown Joliet, across from the Rialto Square Theatre. Heartland’s mobile coaches will be parked at the State’s Attorney’s Office during the drive.

Everyone who donates blood will receive a $5 Dunkin’ Donuts gift card. Will County employees and their spouses who donate will receive one health insurance Wellness Point to be applied to the year that began in March 2015. Employees must register in advance by visiting www.managewell.com and logging on to the worksite wellness activity: “Blood Drive – Taylor Babec S/A.”

Appointments to donate can be made by calling Jennifer Babec at (815) 325-4282 or by visiting Heartland Blood Centers online at www.heartlandbc.org. Walk-in donors also are welcome on the day of the blood drive. Donations take roughly 30 minutes. Heartland is the sole provider of blood products for Silver Cross Hospital and Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center.
