Waunakee Public Safety Blood Drive

Waunakee Fire Department
401 West 2nd Street
April 17, 2021
9:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Waunakee Police, Fire, and EMS are partnering together to host a Waunakee Public Safety BLOOD DRIVE on April 17, 2021. Waunakee Fire has opened up their doors as a location, and American Red Cross is excited to work with our agencies for such a desperate cause. American Red Cross has been hosting blood drives during the ongoing pandemic successfully and safely. All precautions are being taken.

This year, we have repeatedly seen that COVID-19 has been the reason for cancelled events. But for a blood drive, COVID-19 IS the reason for the event. Blood banks are in critical need. Often times, donors have a person in mind as their reason for giving. In our case, with our professions, we never know when WE will be the one needing blood. My personal "why" is my Godson, Calvin, who received a liver transplant at UW Childrens Hospital at just 2 months old. He is a miracle and is growing and thriving, but needs transfusions every few months.

Whatever may call you to give, I feel that this also is an awesome way to work with and show our community that we can partner together for a greater cause.

This is not just for Waunakee Public Safety members. This invitation is to everyone. If you have a family member, friend, neighbor, or ANYONE who you may think would like to give, reach out to them. Providing contact info does NOT sign you up or commit you to a donation. It simply shows interest, and you will be contacted with information on how to book your appointment on April 17th!

If you are interested in donating, please contact Officer Rachael Martin with Waunakee PD at Include your name, email, and phone number, as well as this same information for additional contacts who are interested in donating.
