State Rep. Mary Edly-Allen Hosts Blood Drive at Foglia YMCA

Illinois State Representative Mary Edly-Allen has teamed with Versiti to host a blood drive tomorrow from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Foglia YMCA, 1025 N. Old McHenry Road in Lake Zurich.

Currently, there is an urgent need for blood donations because of relaxed Shelter in Place guidelines, which has resulted in an increase in both auto and work-related injuries.

All prospective donors must wear a mask or face covering and will be directed to wash hands or use hand sanitizer prior to donating. Blood donations directly impact efforts to maintain a healthy and stable blood supply for our local community members.

Social distancing guidelines will also remain in place for both blood donors and staff.
