The BloodCenter of Wisconsin is partnering with several organizations to hold blood drives throughout Milwaukee County in July.
In Oak Creek, will host a drive from 2 to 7 p.m. Wednesday in the commons area of the church, 1441 W. Oakwood Road.
To make an appointment, call Florence Tello at (414) 482-3382. Appointments are recommended, but walk-ins are welcome.
The BloodCenter of Wisconsin said in a news release that blood donation decreases during the summer months, so it is encouraging donors to make sure they schedule some time to give blood this summer.
Hospitals including Wheaton Franciscan in Franklin "have come to rely on BloodCenter of Wisconsin for a steady supply of blood to treat their patients," according to a news release.
Anyone 17 or older who is general good health and meets eligibility requirements is encouraged to donate. The process takes about an hour. Donors should bring a photo ID that includes birth date.
