For the first time since it partnered with Door County Medical Center in May, The Community Blood Center will host its first blood drive for the public on Tuesday. The CBC is the sole provider of blood and blood-related products for Door County Medical Center and it hosted its first drive with hospital employees as a part of the announcement. David Klundt from CBC hopes this is the beginning of many more blood drives in Door County, especially since donors are hard to come by during the summer.
Klundt says with a shelf life of about 42 days, much of the blood donated at its local drives will stay in the community. The CBC’s blood drive will take place on Tuesday from 12 to 3:30 p.m. at Door County Medical Center.
