The Need is Constant; Don’t Forget to Donate Blood This Holiday Season

Between the snow-covered roads and holiday festivities, it can be difficult to make time for blood donation that helps those in our area.

But as we all know, need does not take a break during the holidays. Take a look at the Green Bay donation center and local blood drive schedules so that you can make an appointment. If you don’t know when you will have time, print it now and carry it with you. When you find time to pop-in and help out a neighbor, you will know where to go.  By making an appointment to donate blood through the American Red Cross this holiday season, you not only give someone hope-  you help save lives too.

The Green Bay Blood Donation Center at 2131 Deckner Ave., is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday from 2 PM – 6 PM, Friday hours are from 9 AM to 1 PM and Saturday hours are 8 AM- Noon. The center will be closed December 25 and January 1, but special holiday hours include:
