WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Every three seconds someone needs blood due to an accident, surgery, and various medical conditions. Sometime during their life, nine out of 10 people will require a blood transfusion, while less than five percent of eligible candidates donate.
You can save a life by donating. Aspirus Riverview Hospital hosts blood drives twice a month. During the month of June, blood drives will be held June 19, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., and June 25, 2-7 p.m., in the Lower Level Conference Center of Aspirus Riverview Hospital, 410 Dewey St., Wisconsin Rapids.
For more information or a complete list of blood drives, visit the Blood Center of Northcentral Wisconsin or call 866-566-5900.
