Twin Lakes Fire Dept. to host blood drive Feb. 23

blood-center-logoThe BloodCenter of Wisconsin’s has an upcoming blood drive in Twin Lakes on Monday, Feb. 23, from 2:30  to 7:30 p.m. at Twin Lakes Fire Station, 236 E. Main St.

During the winter months, donating blood can make a profound and positive impact. As cold temperatures and poor travel conditions affect some donors’ ability to keep appointments, more donors are needed to help patients in the Kenosha County community and beyond.

Donors can schedule an appointment by calling 1-877-BE-A-HERO (1-877-232-4376), or visiting www.bcw.edu or m.bcw.edu on their mobile device. Appointments are preferred to ensure a quick and convenient donation, but walk-in donors are also welcome.

Anyone 16 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.
