Westmont, IL… On September 2nd, State Representative Deanne Mazzochi (R-Elmhurst) is proud to host a drive for people looking to help save lives.
Rep. Mazzochi is once again bringing Versiti Blood Centers to the district to gather much needed blood donations. Free COVID and COVID Antibody testing will also be available for those that are interested thanks to Rep. Mazzochi’s partnership with IndiviDx
“I’m always proud to host these kinds of events,” Rep. Mazzochi explained. “Only 10% of people eligible to donate blood do. It’s an absolute shame because unfortunately it’s one resource we can’t manufacture and it’s so invaluable in helping save the lives of those that end up in the hospital, It’s not every day you can say you helped save someone’s life.”
Rep. Mazzochi continued, “With the rise of the Delta variant, and given it can be asymptomatic in vaccinated people, I’m sure people want to stay on top of it. That’s why, in addition, my office is also providing onsite COVID testing. You do NOT need to donate blood in order to get this free testing service.”
The event will take place Thursday, September 2nd from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Westmont Centre in Westmont. Walk-ins are welcome, but as a COVID-19 precaution and to save time, making an appointment for blood donation is strongly preferred. Interested blood donors can make an appointment to donate by clicking here or by contacting Rep. Mazzochi’s office at (630) 852-8633.
