Pacelli High School Blood Drive

May 6, 2014 9am - 2pm

Pacelli High School, 1301 Maria Dr. Stevens Point
This last winter, the Red Cross had to cancel scheduled blood drives due to the cold weather. As a result, the need for blood is high. Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs a blood transfusion. The Red Cross needs at least 70 people to donate.

Walk-ins are accepted but appointments are preferred to avoid waiting in line. To sign up, go to www.redcrossblood.org.
