Blood Drive Scheduled In FDL

08-Oct-2017

This year, BloodCenter of Wisconsin is celebrating its 70th anniversary of saving lives, serving communities and seeking cures. We are able to advance our life-saving mission thanks to the loyal support of blood donors in Fond du Lac County.

 

Heading into fall, blood supplies have reached critically low levels, particularly for O negative blood. Levels have hovered at or below one day supply, when a three day supply is preferred in order to help patients in traumas and emergency situations. While 37% of the U.S. population is eligible to donate blood, less than 10% donate every year. Patients in need of blood tomorrow rely on the life-saving generosity of blood donors today.

 

Fond du Lac County blood donors can help patients in need at BloodCenter of Wisconsin’s upcoming blood drive Saturday, Oct. 14 from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Holy Family Catholic Community Church, 271 Fourth Street Way, Fond du Lac. Donors can schedule an appointment by calling 1-877-BE-A-HERO (1-877-232-4376), or visiting www.bcw.edu.

To help show our appreciation to blood donors across the state, all attempting blood donors will be automatically entered in our Green & Gold Sweepstakes. Winners will receive two tickets to the Green Bay football game Sunday, Dec. 3 vs. Tampa Bay, along with transportation to and from Lambeau Field and access to an exclusive tailgate party. One winner will be selected each week through Oct. 31.

Anyone 17 or older who is in good health and meets eligibility requirements is encouraged to donate blood. Appointments are preferred, but walk-in donors are also welcome. Parental consent is required for 16-year-olds to donate. The entire process takes about an hour. Donors should bring a photo ID that includes birth date.
