Summertime blood need Blood donation decreases during busy summer months as travel increases and the number of school and community drives decreases. Because of this, BloodCenter encourages donors to make the time this summer to donate. Hospitals, including Aurora Medical Center – Kenosha, United Hospital System – Kenosha Medical Center and United Hospital System – St. Catherine’s Medical Center, have come to rely on BloodCenter of Wisconsin for a steady supply of blood to treat their patients.

Anyone 17 or older who is in general good health and meets eligibility requirements is encouraged to donate blood. Parental consent is required for 16-year-olds to donate. The entire process takes about an hour. Donors should bring a photo ID that includes birth date.
