Life-saving blood is needed every day in the Quad Cities and throughout America. To continue efforts to get that blood, ImpactLife is hosting a blood drive in Rock Island the day after Memorial Day.

Right now, officials from ImpactLife only have 2 people scheduled to donate blood and we know the Quad Cities is willing to help because that's who we are. If you are able to donate blood and want to make a difference in our community and around the U.S., we have the details on how you can signup today.
