For the last decade, one of the ways Popular Community Bank has engaged with our community has been at the heart of “the human side of banking” – blood. An annual blood drive hosted at our Rosemont location has contributed to saving hundreds of lives over 10 years.
Two years ago, Popular Community Bank teamed up with LifeSource to host a great event. And this year’s event is coming up soon!
Appointments are preferred, but walk-ins are always welcome. To schedule an appointment, you can call either Jayne Boyle at (847) 994-6833 or Maribel Cortez-Fontanez at (847) 994-5932 or register online at www.LifeSource.org with sponsor code 234B.

Did You Know: each pint of blood saves three lives, not one!
Popular Community Bank provides a comfortable experience for all donors. There is a hospitality area that is second-to-none, with snacks and plenty of water to help donors make it through the rest of their day. There will also be movies running to keep donors entertained.
Usually, donations take 60 minutes to complete. It is recommended that caffeine is avoided before donating, as well as tobacco use. Smoking is also discouraged after donating. You are asked to have a good meal before making a donation, though.
Donors are asked to bring a photo ID, and will need to complete a personal history questionnaire before making a donation. This year, the personal history part of registration can be completed online prior to arriving.
