  • Our community needs donors like you. 
  • In the Effingham area,  Community Blood Services of Illinois is the exclusive provider to HSHS St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital.
  • Community Blood Services of Illinois is the provider of blood and blood components to more than 100 hospitals in Illinois, Iowa, Missouri and Wisconsin.
  • While the demand for blood remains constant year-round, the rate of blood donation typically decreases during the holiday season. 
  • COVID-19 has caused many blood drives to have to cancel, however for patients who require blood products for their treatment, the need for donors remains the same. 
  • With each and every donation you have the power to save 3 lives. 
  • Will you give?
  • We hold monthly drives at both the Effingham Event Center and HSHS St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital.
  • Donating blood is safe and we follow all covid guidelines.
  • Have you had covid? We need people who can donate their plasma to help others.
  • For more information or to schedule a time to donate go to or call 1-800-747-5401
  • We are always looking for groups that are willing to host a drive. That could either be inside their business/organization or on a bloodmobile.
