Blood donations drop off in summer months, but the demand remains just as strong.
The BloodCenter of Wisconsin will hold a blood drive from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Friday at the Pettit National Ice Center, 500 S. 84th St., West Allis.
Donations will help children and adults who are seriously injured, undergoing surgery or being treated for cancer and other illnesses. By donating just one unit of blood and one hour of their time, donors have the potential to save up to three lives.
Anyone who is 16 years old is eligible to donate with parental consent and donors under the age of 18 years old are asked to visit bcw.edu to view specific height and weight requirements.
The entire process takes about an hour and all blood types are needed. Donors should bring a photo ID. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 1-877-BE-A-HERO.
