Area residents are invited to join Waupun Memorial Hospital associates, volunteers and physicians and donate an hour of time on Tuesday, October 1 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 St., Waupun.
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.
