Community learning series continues at Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center


The Quad Cities Community Foundation continues its monthly learning series on Thursday, August 22 by introducing Community Foundation donors to the work of the Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center. The series was created to bring together donors, community members and Quad Citizens working at nonprofits that have received grant support—or hold Nonprofit Endowment Funds—at the Community Foundation.

“Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center plays a critical role in the health and wellness of our community, and we are excited to partner with them for this special event,” said Joscelyn Rowe, director of donor engagement and stewardship.

The event will go beyond the experience Quad Citizens may be most familiar with—blood drives. The hour-long event after the workday will include a tour of the Blood Center, offering an opportunity to see all that happens with a unit of blood after the donation is made. The tour will include an overview of MVRBC and a chance to see the Donor Center and laboratories for blood testing, separation of blood components, and the Blood Center’s inventory management and distribution area.

MVRBC is the provider of all blood components transfused at hospitals in the Quad Cities region. The event is free to all donors of the Community Foundation.
