Methodist churches to host blood drive in McNabb

Event to be held in the McNabb Fire Department

A phlebotomist prepares to collect blood during the second annual Jake Keltner Memorial Blue Blood Drive on Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, Saturday, Jan. 9, 2021, in Crystal Lake. The blood drive event was held Glacier Ridge Elementary School this year to better accommodate social distancing measures. It attracted about 360 pre-registered donors with walk-in also accepted.  McHenry County sheriff's Deputy Jacob Keltner was killed in the line of duty serving an arrest warrant in March 2019 in Rockford.

The Methodist churches will host a Red Cross Community Blood Drive in McNabb from 1 to 6 p.m. Monday, June 17, at Goldasich Hall in the McNabb Fire Department, 391 North Route 89.

Participation offers a chance for repeat and first-time donors to help others in need, with their donation of blood. All blood types save lives.

For appointments, call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Donors may also sign up and pre-register on line using RapidPass at
