O’FALLON – The O’Fallon Rotary Club held their holiday blood drive prior to Christmas at St. Clare Grade School.  The American Red Cross took care of the blood collection, while local rotarians checked in donors and provided them with food and drink after they gave. The O’Fallon Rotary Club organizes two blood drives per year as part of their mission to help others and serve their community.
