BloodCenter of Wisconsin blood drives, for January in Waukesha County:
- 1:45 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. Friday, Islamic Society of Milwaukee, 16670 Pheasant Drive, Brookfield
- 1:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Jan. 28, St. Dominic Catholic Parish, 18255 W. Capitol Drive, Brookfield.
The center says that there is typically a drop-off in donations during the winter months, while the demand for blood remains.
All types are encouraged, but the center says type O negative is especially needed because it is a universal blood type capable of being given to anyone in emergency situations. BloodCenter of Wisconsin requests that anyone 17 or older and in good health donate blood. Parental consent is required for 16-year-olds.
The procedure takes about an hour to complete. Donors are required to bring a photo ID that includes a birth date.
Donors can schedule an appointment by phone at 1-877-232-4376 or online at versiti.org/BCW.
