Blood drive scheduled Monday

The Monday, Jan. 23, Blood Drive will be held at Redeemer Lutheran on Eastern Avenue. This will be the first of the six held throughout the year. The hours will be from 12 noon to 5 p.m.

Because of the rough winter so far this year, The BloodCenter of Wisconsin currently has shortages in most blood types.

The drive is co-sponsored by the Plymouth Lions and the Plymouth American Legion Post 243 and hosted by the BloodCenter of Wisconsin, a non-profit organization that supplies the blood for use in over 50 Wisconsin hospitals as well as Aurora Sheboygan Memorial Medical Center, Froedert, Children’s Hospital and the Aurora Surgery Center in Plymouth.

The groups have set a goal of 50 donations throughout the day — if you are busy you may call and get an appointment go to or call 1-877-232-4376 and mention the Plymouth Blood Drive. The Blood Center also stresses that walk-ins are very welcome.

It takes roughly an hour to go through the donation process. You need to be healthy, have a driver’s license or a photo ID and the ability to give some medical information.

The Jan. 23 blood drive is the first of the 2017 year. Mark your calendar for the other five throughout the year. They will all be held on Mondays - March 27, May 22, July 24, Sept. 25 and Nov. 27.

Please be a hero and donate. Your donation could be the most valuable gift you ever give - just ask any of your neighbors who have ever received lifesaving blood products.
