The Community Blood Center collects blood from donors, processes it in our laboratory, and prepares it for hospital patients. We currently provide 18 Wisconsin and Michigan hospitals with a full range of blood components, including red blood cells, platelets and plasma.
The Community Blood Center operates neighborhood donor centers in Appleton, Oshkosh, Little Chute, and Woodruff. Our blood drive program includes 6 self-contained blood drive units: 4 bloodmobiles and 2 indoor blood drive units. Last year, volunteer donors gave more than 50,000 blood donations with the Community Blood Center.
Our staff members seek to raise awareness about blood donation by offering informational presentations, education materials, and classroom talks. As a donor center with the Be the Match Registry (sponsored by the National Marrow Donor Program) we also help facilitate bone marrow donations.
