Blood donation is always critical but its importance has ramped up during the outbreak. 

Next Monday, March 30 the Rock River Valley Blood Center will set up its mobile unit at the McDonald's on State Street just east of Alpine in Rockford. Everyone that donates will get a coupon to redeem at McDonald's.

Donating blood has been a cleared activity during out shelter-in-place so you could use this as a great excuse to get out of the house.

The van will be at the McDonald's from 10AM til 2PM and you can even make an appointment by signing up here.
