An opportunity to help save lives in the community through donating blood will be held on Wednesday, November 21 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm and 2:30 pm to 5:00 pm at Osceola Community Hospital in Sibley, IA.  Residents will have an opportunity make a difference in the local blood supply.

“As we enter the holiday season, many people ask, how can I help to impact the community and make the season count.  A simple way is to roll up your sleeve and give blood at the local community blood drive,” states Ken Versteeg, Executive Director, Community Blood Bank.  “It is ever so important to give blood during the holidays, as more people travel and schedule surgeries prior to the completion of the year.  The historic trend for blood usage from now to the end of the year is for a significant increase in the usage of blood products.   Donors donating blood on November 21st will be impacting patients’ lives that are in need of blood through Thanksgiving and into the first weeks of December.”

Donors must be at least 17 years old (16 years old with a signed parent consent form found at www.cbblifeblood.org), weigh 110 lbs. or more and be in good general health.  Please bring an ID with you.  It is recommended that a person eat and drink plenty of fluids prior to donating blood.  The donation process only takes 30 – 35 minutes on the bloodmobile.  For additional information please contact Osceola Community Hospital at 712-754-2574.

Community Blood Bank is not affiliated with other blood bank organizations and takes pride in being a self-sufficient organization, thanks to the generosity of our local blood donors.

Rock Rapids, Iowa — The US Department of Housing and Urban Development or HUD is changing the way the homeless are served. There is now going to be a “coordinated entry system,” which will match the homeless with available housing and services. If your organization provides services to homeless and other vulnerable people, it will need to be included in the system and you are invited to a meeting explaining it in more detail. This particular meeting is aimed at community action agencies, law enforcement, churches, service organizations, veterans organizations, and more in Lyon, Sioux, Plymouth, Ida, and Cherokee counties. The meeting will be on Wednesday, April 18th, 2018 at 10 a.m. at the Forster Community Center in Rock Rapids (across the street from Subway on Highway 9). If you have any questions, call Julie De Ruyter at 712-472-3896.
