On Saturday, July 31, the Lombard-based Fr. Boecker Knights of Columbus Council #6090 sponsored a community blood drive at Embassy Suites in Lombard for Versiti Blood Center of Illinois. Every two seconds, there is someone in need of blood; three gallons of blood are used every minute in the United States. One unit of blood can save up to three lives, and 20 units were collected at the drive. Pictured here, Versiti technician Veronica Licea prepares Jeremy Treado of Glen Ellyn for his donation.
