THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Blood Drive November 26th Wausaukee School
Issue Date: November 1, 2018
Wausaukee-Wausaukee Blood Drive will be held at Wausaukee High School from 12:30-5:30 pm on Monday, Nov. 26th. The Wausaukee Lions and Leos along with some Legion members help. The public is welcome. All Wausaukee blood drives qualify for Senior Scholarships and this year $2500 in scholarships went for Wausaukee 2018 seniors.
Call Barb at 715-759-5747 or 715-927-5213 to make an appointment or just walk in. The goal of 50 pints must be met for good staffing. Everyone who donates will receive a T-shirt.
Red bloods cells are also drawn from those who meet the criteria. To do this make an appointment as this type of donating will stop about one hour before the end of the drive, about 4:30 pm. This will count as two units or pints.
Healthy donors may give every 56 days or eight weeks. Donors may give in both Wausaukee and Crivitz all year round.
The Crivitz drive is Dec. 10 at St. Mary's Hall from noon-5 pm and last week in December at Silver Cliff noon-5 pm at the Rescue Squad. Call Anita at 920-660-0227 or Red Cross at 1-800-733-2767 for appointments. Pembine drive is Nov. 12 at Beecher Town Hall.
Persons must be at least 17 years old and weigh at least 110 pounds to donate. Students 16 years old may give blood with a form signed by their parents. Every unit of blood can be used for three or more patients. If taking medication persons may give blood but need to be checked out if they are ok. Diabetics may also give if they are under control.
Before donating eat a good diet and drink plenty of water. This will keep iron count up. Broccoli, raisins, nuts and other high iron foods can help.
Anyone who would like to help with the drive may call Barb at 715-759-5747 or 715-927- 5213 to let her know details. Help is needed in loading, escorting donors, canteen, registration, setting up and taking down, and bringing bars and cookies.
