CRPL to host blood drive Wednesday

The Cedar Rapids Public Library is partnering with the Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center to host a blood drive Wednesday, Aug. 3, from 10 am 2 pm, at the CRPL West.

There is a significant, ongoing need for blood donations to save lives in our community. Most people will require a blood transfusion at some point in their lives. To meet patient needs for blood and blood components, the Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center requires more than 2,000 donations from volunteer blood donors every week. And every year, those donations are used to help more than 200,000 patients in their recovery from illness or injury.

The Cedar Rapids Public Library invite you to register and help save a life through your donation.

Walk-ins are welcome but registration is requested. Register at or call (319) 398-5123 for more information.
