Rep. Butler Encourages Blood Donation This Holiday Season

State Representative Tim Butler (R-Springfield) is partnering with the Springfield ImpactLife Donor Center (formerly the Central Illinois Community Blood Center) to sponsor a holiday blood drive on Wednesday, December 15.

“We are still experiencing a blood shortage that began in 2020,” said Butler. “While there are many ways to support our communities through giving this time of year, I encourage those who are able to consider giving the gift of life through donating blood this holiday season. Your donation could save up to three lives.”
