Rothschild Blood Drive

If you haven't taken the time to donate blood, now might be good for it.  A blood drive is going on in Rothschild in the Village Hall.

Appointments are suggested, and donors can receive one free ticket to the Wisconsin Valley Fair.  Officials say summer is when the need is greatest.

"Summer is a critical time to donate blood really due to the fact that a lot of our blood comes from high schools and universities, and when they're not in session, that impacts our ability to collect blood," said Vicki Bohman, a representative for Bloodcenter of Wisconsin. 

The drive will be held again tomorrow from noon to 6 p.m., and next Thursday and Friday from noon to 6 p.m.

If you head down, you should budget about an hour.

The Bloodcenter toll free line is 888-310-7555, and appointments can be made online at
