MASH Blood Drive set for July 19 at Pioneer Park

The public is invited to help boost the Community Blood Center's blood supply Wednesday by making a donation during the eighth annual Hodag MASH Blood Drive.

"Pioneer Park in Rhinelander will be transformed into a mobile MASH donation center," officials from the Community Blood Center said in a press release. "It truly is one of our most memorable drives of the year."

This year's event will include:

• Free T-shirts for donors

• Hot dogs, dessert and a special lunch provided by Ministry-St. Mary's Hospital

• Breakfast from Dunkin' Donuts

• MASH tents throughout the park for outdoor donation

• The chance to win one of four $500 Scheels gift cards

"Most importantly, of course, it's a great opportunity for the community to unite behind a cause that affects us all," the release continues. "The summer months are among the most challenging times of the year for organizations such as ours, as busy schedules for our donors often make it difficult to maintain the healthy blood reserves patients rely upon. With college and high school students on summer break, this alone accounts for 500 donations lost per month."

The drive will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Community Blood Center was established in 1955 and continues today as an independent nonprofit providing a safe and reliable blood supply to patients throughout the Northwoods and Upper Michigan.
