Chicagoland Home Connection, a networking group of experienced agents that work for Coldwell Banker in the Chicagoland area, has recently started doing blood drives in their offices as a way to give back to the community. Started 10 years ago by Coldwell Banker’s Diane Diedrich, the group consists of 12 agents, three of which were once registered nurses. The blood drives have successfully drawn crowds of 20 to 30 donators each time. The drives are open to the public and take place on a regular basis throughout the area. Hinsdale, Chicago, Libertyville and St.Charles have hosted the events in the past, and the next scheduled blood drive will take place in Glenview.
