emergency appeal

BloodCenter of Wisconsin is issuing an emergency appeal for blood donations. Over the Labor Day
weekend and the subsequent weeks, significantly fewer donors have been seen per day than needed.
As a result of this decline, BloodCenter is asking an additional 1,000 donors to come forward for
patients in need.
You can help by participating in our upcoming blood drive!
UWSP Blood Drive:
Open to the public
Monday, Sept. 23 and Tuesday, Sept. 24
10 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days
University Center, Melvin Laird Room
For an appointment email [email protected] or call BloodCenter toll free for
more information at 1-888-310-7555. Walk-ins are welcome.
BloodCenter has less than a one-day supply of some critical blood types, such as O negative.
Fortunately, our hospitals have an adequate supply at this time but we must ensure an adequate supply
of all blood types moving forward.
If you have made an appointment to donate blood, please keep that appointment. Patients in our
community are relying on your generosity. BloodCenter is the sole supplier of blood to Ministry Saint
Michaels Hospital in Stevens Point.
