Area residents are invited to join Waupun Memorial Hospital associates, volunteers and physicians and donate an hour of time on Tuesday, April 2 to give blood to the BloodCenter of Wisconsin.
Blood donations will be accepted in the Lower Level Meeting Room from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. at Waupun Memorial Hospital, 620 W. Brown Street, Waupun.
All attempting donors will receive a pass for four people to the Mount Olympus water park in Wisconsin Dells to be used between May 25 and July 3, 2013. In addition, every time you donate, you receive points that can be used in BloodCenter’s Giving for Life program. The points acquired in this donor recognition program can be exchanged for items in our Recognition Center. It’s our way of saying “thank you” for your life-saving gift.
Giving blood is easy and takes about an hour. The process includes registering, giving a brief medical history, and having temperature, blood pressure and hemoglobin checked.
Blood that is donated remains local, as the BloodCenter of Wisconsin is the sole supplier of blood to Waupun Memorial Hospital and St. Agnes Hospital, as well as 55 other Wisconsin hospitals in 27 counties.
Call 324-6512 to make an appointment or go on-line at www.bcw.edu/Waupun.
