Wisconsin Rapids Blood Drives October 18 & 24

WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Blood supplies remain very low; so please consider being a blood donor. It only takes about an hour to save a life by donating blood.

Blood drives will be held in the former East Junior High School music room at 311 Lincoln Street in Wisconsin Rapids on Tuesday, October 18, from 10 am to 3 pm and Monday, October 24, from 2 to 7 pm.

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.

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

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.
