Blood Drives in Wisconsin Rapids December 18 & 19

WISCONSIN RAPIDS – What is the best gift you could possibly give? Blood donation! Donating blood costs nothing, takes less than an hour, and saves lives. Blood cannot be manufactured, so donation is the only hope for someone whose life depends on this gift from others.

The Blood Center of Northcentral Wisconsin will hold blood drives in Wisconsin Rapids on Monday, December 18, from 2 pm to 7 pm and Tuesday, December 19, from 10 am to 3 pm. The drives will take place in room 111 of the former East Junior High School at 311 Lincoln Street. (Enter off Lincoln Street.)

The Blood Center of Northcentral Wisconsin is the primary supplier of blood to Aspirus Riverview Hospital in Wisconsin Rapids.

Appointments are encouraged to promote social distancing; but walk-ins are also welcome. To schedule an appointment or for more information, please call the Blood Center of Northcentral Wisconsin’s toll-free number at 866-566-5900.

People with medical conditions or who are taking any medications are asked to call the toll-free number before attending a blood drive to find out if they are eligible to donate.
