Nicolet Area Technical College in Rhinelander will be holding a blood drive on Wednesday, November 7 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The blood drive will take place in the Theatre of the Learning Resource Center. College students, staff, and community members are invited to participate.
Advance donation appointments are highly recommended, and may be made by calling Julie at 365-4907 or visiting www.save3lives.org. Walk-in donors are welcome, but scheduling an appointment keeps the total time required for a donation to less than an hour.
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.
Since 1955, the Community Blood Center has worked with volunteer blood donors to provide a steady, reliable blood supply for hospitals.
