Tomah Memorial Hospital and Versiti Blood Center of Wisconsin are looking to area residents to donate blood heading into a busy time of year.
“Blood donations reach every part of our state to save lives, and during summer, we see a dramatic 20 percent decrease in donations. By donating blood at this drive, you help ensure we can support our community in a time of need,” said Versiti Associate Medical Director Waseem Anani, M.D.
Residents can donate blood at Tomah Memorial Hospital July 26 from noon – 6 p.m. in the classrooms at the hospital.
Versiti Blood Center of Wisconsin serves more than 50 hospitals, including Tomah Memorial across Wisconsin.
Tomah Memorial Hospital marketing & public relations director Eric Prise said as an extra incentive, all attempting donors will receive a voucher for one free admission to the Monroe County Fair July 24 – 28 at Recreation Park in Tomah.
To donate blood, a person must be in good health, at least 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and have photo identification. Sixteen-year-olds may also donate with parental consent. To Download a form, CLICK HERE
