Manitowish Waters Women’s Service League Blood Drive
There will be a Community Blood Bank blood drive on Thursday, February 18th from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Manitowish Waters Women’s Service League will be sponsoring the blood drive, held at the Manitowish Waters at the Community Center on Highway 51 (5733 Airport Road) in Manitowish Waters. Please register ahead of time to give the Community Blood Bank an idea how many personnel will be needed at this site, and also to reduce your wait. To sign up, please call Nancy Hajt at 952-334-3190. In order to space apart our donors, we kindly request that you schedule by appointment. Please remember to wear your face mask!
The entire donation process is usually completed in under an hour, and the actual donation takes less than 15 minutes. Blood donors must be at least 17 years old (16 with parental permission), weigh at least 110 pounds, be in general good health, and bring a photo ID. Donors are encouraged to eat a regular meal and drink plenty of fluids prior to donating. There is no substitute for human blood, and over 4 million Americans receive blood transfusions each year. If you are on any medication, you still may be able to give blood. Call the Community Blood Center at 800-280-4102 with any questions regarding medications that might affect your eligibility to give blood. The Women’s Service League thank all who help us with this need.
