Sturgeon Bay blood drive to combat national shortage

There is a national blood shortage, and on Friday June 17th that will be addressed locally. From noon until 5:30 PM the Sturgeon Bay Community Church is hosting a blood drive put on by the Community Blood Center, which is the Door County Medical Center blood product provider. All healthy and eligible donors are encouraged to come out. Community Blood Center Public Relations Specialist Julianna Jarchow says the entire process which includes screening and the donation is simple and takes roughly an hour. 


Jarchow also highlights the importance of donating blood, noting that blood transfusions are possible only because of volunteer donors. 



Currently, there are particular urgent needs for types O positive, O negative, and A positive blood. You can schedule a donation online or by calling (800) 280-4102.
