02/28/2020- March is Red Cross month, making next month the perfect time to make a potentially life-saving blood or platelet donation. The American Red Cross is asking the public to join its mission by giving blood or platelets next month as part of their celebration. Donors of all blood types, but especially type O, are urgently needed to help ensure blood is available for patients this spring. Blood drives are being planned in March throughout our region, including in Crivitz, Coleman, Marinette, and Menominee. Individuals who are 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. You can get more information about upcoming drives or sign up to give by visiting redcrossblood.org.
