Rhinelander Blood Drive will help fill the food pantry
Rhinelander residents will have two opportunities to donate at “Fill the Pantry” blood drives near Thanksgiving, on Nov. 20 and 29.
At these blood drives, blood donors who bring an item of food for the food pantry can enter a drawing to win a $100 grocery gift card.
During last year’s “Fill the Pantry” promotion, Community Blood Center blood donors gave more than 850 food items at blood drives and donor centers, and we are hoping to meet or beat that number this year. A picture of last year’s donation table is attached.
Blood donations are projected to drop sharply the week of Thanksgiving, and the blood donations collected at these two blood drives will help soften the drop in donations. Any promotional assistance that you can provide would be appreciated.
The blood drives will run from noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20 and Wednesday, Nov. 29.
The drive will both be held in the Trig’s Riverwalk Centre, at 232 S. Courtney Street in Rhinelander.
