Hendricks Community Hospital to Host Community Blood Drive
Hendricks, MN – Hendricks Community Hospital and Community Blood Bank will host a
community blood drive event on Monday, February 27 between 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
at Hendricks Community Hospital. The public will have an opportunity to donate blood to
help local patients in the hospital. Donors can schedule an appointment by logging onto

Community Hospital or call 605-331-3222. Walk-ins are welcome, but appointments are
“With severe weather occurring over many weeks, nearly two weeks of blood drives
have been cancelled. On top of these cancellations, collections have been challenged
due to cold and flu season,” said Ken Versteeg, Executive Director, Community Blood
Bank. “Among those who benefit from donated blood are trauma, burn victims, cancer
patients, and persons undergoing surgery. The need for blood donation in the winter
increases as the cold and flu season prevent donors from being able to give as
frequently. We urge community members to consider donating blood at this blood drive
on February 27, and assist in strengthening supplies for the community.”
Donors must be at least 17 years old (16 years old with a signed parent consent form
found at www.cbblifeblood.org ), weigh 110 lbs or more and be in good general health
the day of the donation. Please bring an I.D. It is recommended that a person eat and
drink plenty of fluid prior to donating. For more information log onto
www.cbblifeblood.org or call Community Blood Bank at (605) 331-3222. Community
Blood Banks is a nonprofit, cooperative of Sanford Medical Center and Avera
McKennan Hospital and the sole blood provider to Hendricks Community Hospital.
Community Blood Bank is not associated with any other blood bank organizations.
