WILLIAMSON COUNTY, IL (KFVS) - The Heartland Blood Drive has been a success so far, but we still need your help.
When only one person donates they have the potential to affect three separate lives. Roy Eastwood, from Energy, is a walking example.
So far, in Roy's lifetime, he's donated 54 units of blood, which totals almost 7 gallons and more than 150 lives.
Roy said he just feels like he's paying the blessing of life forward.
"I enjoy giving because it saves somebody's life," he said. "And I always said, if one person from each family would donate blood- then there wouldn't be a shortage, you know. It would help."
If you'd like to take a tip from Roy and donate, there are seven locations across the Heartland where you can.
- Cape Girardeau West Park Mall
- Dexter Eagles
- Poplar Bluff's First United Methodist Church
- Perryville Park Center
- Sikeston Factory Outlet Mall
And in Illinois:
- University Mall in Carbondale
- Illinois Star Centre Mall in Marion
Our Heartland Blood Drive runs through this Saturday.
