Blood donations needed in Brown County
LEDGEVIEW (WLUK) -- While out shopping for holiday gifts on Black Friday, you can also donate a life-saving gift.
The BloodCenter of Wisconsin is hosting a blood drive Friday, Nov. 24 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Ledgeview Fire Department, 3700 Dickinson Rd.
Officials say blood donations tend to decrease at the end of the year as people become busy, preparing for upcoming holidays.
Donations of all blood types are needed, especially O negative donors who carry the universal blood type given to patients in emergency situations.
Donors may schedule an appointment by calling 1-877-232-4376 or go online at BCW.edu.
Appointments are preferred but walk-ins are also welcome.
