The Village of Lyons partnered with Heartland Blood Centers November 13th for their third blood drive of the year, seeing their most successful blood drive yet.
Working closely with local communities to set up blood drives, Heartland Blood Centers projected to collect 15 units of blood from Lyons. They received a record number of 20 as residents came out in droves.
“It does not surprise me that we broke the record, the residents of Lyons are always willing to help the community,” said Parks and Recreation Director Frank Torres.
The next blood drive the village will host will be in January of 2013.
