Blood drive Wednesday in Presque Isle

A blood drive will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday at the Presque Isle Harbor Association, 6424 Kauffman Road.

The blood drive is part of Versiti’s Pulse of Summer push to collect more donations, in response to the national shortage.

In January, the American Red Cross announced a national blood crisis — the worst blood shortage in over a decade, with a 10% decline in blood donations and ongoing blood drive cancellations and staffing issues due to COVID-19.

If you are a healthy individual, you are encouraged to donate. One donation can save as many as three lives. Sign up at donate.michigan.versiti. org.
