to help boost blood supply prior to July 4 weekend

No matter what your occupation or how you spend your time, you can be a lifesaver this summer by donating blood through the American Red Cross at the 24th Annual Super Donor Days Blood Drive. According to the Red Cross, holiday weekends like the Fourth of July can prove extra challenging for blood collection making this is a great time to donate.

Enjoy a day of great company, special entertainment and Glass Nickel Pizza while being a summer lifesaver for patients in need. The first 50 presenting donors each day will receive a gift, courtesy of Bellin Health.  Free childcare is available during your donation and there is free parking in front of Shopko Hall and on the east side of the Don Huston Center.

“Whether you’re home from school for the summer, or never donated before, come out to Super Donor Days and experience a Green Bay-area tradition,” said Dave Liethen, American Red Cross donor recruitment representative. “We’re hoping over 200 people come out to donate blood during the two-day event.”

Eligible blood donors are encouraged to visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-GIVE-LIFE (448-3543) to make an appointment. Scheduling an appointment in advance allows the Red Cross to make donations as convenient as possible for donors.

A blood donor card or driver’s license, or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Eligible donors must be at least 17 years old, or 16 years old with a signed Red Cross parental/guardian consent form where state permits, must weigh at least 110 pounds and be in general good health. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.
