THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Crivitz Blood Drive Mar. 24
Issue Date: February 12, 2014
March is Red Cross Month and nearly 5 million patients need blood transfusions every year. By making an appointment to give blood, eligible donors can help the Red Cross meet patient needs.
The month was initially declared Red Cross Month in 1943, when then-President Franklin Roosevelt reminded Americans the Red Cross is committed to providing blood products, disaster relief and emergency social services across the U.S. and internationally.
A blood drive will be held at St. Marys Church Hall in Crivitz on Monday, March 24 from noon to 5:30 p.m.
To donate call Donna at 715-757-2477 for an appointment. All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply for patients. A blood donor card or drivers license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age, 16 with parental consent in some states, weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.
