Sheboygan Athletic Club and VFW Post 9156 are partnering to sponsor a Red Cross Blood Drive on June 14

Posted: June 7, 2023

Sheboygan, WI — National Blood Donor Day is June 14 and it recognizes the importance of giving blood and platelets while honoring those who roll up a sleeve to help patients in need. The community is invited to help save lives by donating blood on June 14, 2023 from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM at VFW Post 9156 552 South Evans Drive, Sheboygan.

It takes less time to donate blood than to watch a classic summer camp movie. Remember those nostalgic story lines with the thrill of adventure, new friendships and the great outdoors? Channel that excitement and those I-can-do-anything feelings to help save lives.

When you come to give June 14, we’ll say thanks with a $10 gift card by email to the merchant of your choice, a $10 VFW gift card, and tickets to a 2023 Sheboygan A’s baseball game.
