Blood drive Tuesday at Generations

The Plymouth Lions Club and Ladewig-Zinkgraf American Legion Post 243 will host a July Blood Drive at the new Generations building, 1500 Douglas Ave., Tuesday, July 16, from 12:30 to 5 p.m.

This is the fourth in a series of six to be held during 2013.

Because of the busy summer, the BloodCenter of Wisconsin currently has shortages in most of the eight blood types. More than 600 donations per day are needed to supply the area.

The drive is hosted by the BloodCenter of Wisconsin, a non-profit organization that supplies the blood for use in more than 50 Wisconsin hospitals, including the Aurora Memorial Medical Center in Sheboygan and the Aurora Surgery Center in Plymouth.

Appointments may be made by calling 1-877-232-4376 or online at

The BloodCenter stresses that walk-ins are always welcome. It takes roughly an hour to go through the donation process. Donors must be healthy, have a driver’s license or photo ID, and the ability to give some medical information.

The next blood drive will be Sept. 17.
