Memorial Blood Centers recognized the top supporters and advocates of blood donation last week during their annual appreciation luncheon at Spirit Mountain. The Laboratory at Hayward Area Memorial Hospital was presented with the 100 Club Award. This award is given to hospitals, businesses, community members or organizations that collected 100 or more units of blood in 2016. Hayward Area Memorial Hospital placed in the top ten with 182 units of donated blood.

We would like to issue a special thank you to all of our volunteers who help to recruit blood donors, as well as those who donate blood to help maintain a stable blood supply.Each and every day, blood donors help save lives in local hospitals.

Our next blood drive is scheduled on June 12th from 9:30am to 5:30pm. To schedule an appointment to donate call the HAMH Laboratory at (715) 934-4241. For more information on Memorial Blood Centers visit www.mbc.org.
