ROCHELLE — Rochelle Police Department held their second annual vein drain blood drive on Thursday afternoon in conjunction with the Rock River Valley Blood Center.

Donor recruiter Jaclyn Thomson stated the Rochelle Halloween-themed blood drive went very well. Within the first hour the group had 18 donors visit the blood mobile.

She credited the police department for the influx in donors.

“Rochelle Police Department does a lot of recruiting leading up to the drive,” said Thomson. “They played a big role in calling repeat donors and reminding them to donate on Thursday. By hosting a blood drive, the Rochelle Police Department is helping to save lives in our community.”
