As plans for vacations, cookouts and fireworks displays take shape, the American Red Cross wants people to remember to donate blood in the summer.

The American Red Cross in Green Bay will host the 25th annual Super Donor Days blood drive June 30 and July 1.

“Experience a Green Bay area tradition and help boost the blood supply before heading out this holiday weekend,” Dave Liethen, American Red Cross donor recruitment representative said in a written statement. “We’re hoping more than 500 people come out to donate blood during the two-day event.”

Donors at Shopko Hall in Ashwaubenon will be able to enjoy music and refreshments as they give blood. Free child care and free parking in the area will be available.

“We like to make sure that the donors coming in that give their time and blood are having a good experience,” said Jody Weyers, volunteer and communications director for the Red Cross chapter. “We rely on hundreds of volunteers to come out and help support us.”

To Donate:

Call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or go online to redcrossblood.org. Appointments prefered, walk-ins welcome.
