Wautoma Kiwanis to sponsor Community Blood Drive Oct. 28

The Community Blood Center (CBC), a local non-profit organization supplying  life-saving blood and platelets to hospitals in Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, is hosting a blood drive on Monday, Oct. 28, from 10:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m. at WW11 Memorial Building, located in Wautoma. The drive is open to the public and community members are encouraged to schedule a donation appointment

Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood. To meet that need, 35,000 blood donations are needed across the country every single day.

“Blood is something that cannot be manufactured or made, it has to be given as a gift from person to another,” said Kristine Belanger, vice president, donor services, The Community Blood Center. “Every person who comes out to donate blood gives the best gift anyone can give, the gift of life.”

CBC hosts more than 100 blood drives monthly in communities across Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula and is proud to support 100 percent of the blood needs in 21 are hospitals. In more than 30 years, no hospital serviced by CBC has had to cancel a scheduled surgery due to a lack of blood supply.

Please call 800-280-4102 to schedule a life-saving donation appointment.
