Community Blood Bank blood drive on Feb. 27 in Manitowish Waters
February 25, 2020
A Community Blood Bank blood drive will be sponsored by the Manitowish Waters Lioness from 1 to 5 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 27 at the Manitowish Waters at the Community Center on Highway 51 (4 Airport Road) in Manitowish Waters.
Donars are asked to register ahead of time to give the Community Blood Bank an idea how many personnel will be needed at this site, and also to reduce the wait.
The entire donation process is usually completed in under an hour, and the actual donation takes less than 15 minutes. Blood donors must be at least 17 years old (16 with parental permission), weigh at least 110 pounds, be in general good health, and bring a photo ID. Donors are encouraged to eat a regular meal and drink plenty of fluids prior to donating.
Call Nancy Hajt at 952-334-3190 or 715-543-2149 to register. Walk-ins are also welcome, but may have to wait.
Call the Community Blood Center at 800-280-4102 with any questions regarding medications that might affect the eligibility to give blood.
