Blood Drives in Wisconsin Rapids October 17 & 23

WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Looking for a way to help others, but maybe don’t have much time or money to spare? Blood donation 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 the generosity of others.

The Blood Center of Northcentral Wisconsin will hold blood drives in Wisconsin Rapids on Tuesday, October 17, from 10 am to 3 pm and on Monday, October 23, from 2 pm to 7 pm. The drives will take place in the former East Junior High School music room at 311 Lincoln Street. (Use Lincoln Street entrance.)

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.
