02/04/2019- Blood banks throughout the UP and Wisconsin are in dire need of donations. Representatives with the UP Health System Regional Blood Center say they’re experiencing a shortage of supply and are in need of all blood types. The same goes for the American Red Cross in Wisconsin as last week’s winter weather forced the cancellation of some blood drives. A blood drive is being planned for February 13th at the Pine Tree Mall in Marinette from 10:00 AM until 3:00 PM. Those wishing to donate through the UP Health System Regional Blood Centers in Escanaba or Iron Mountain can call 906-225-4610.
