TOMAH — Tomah Memorial Hospital has scheduled a holiday blood drive from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dec. 26.

Donations decline but the need for blood increases during the holiday season, according to BloodCenter of Wisconsin officials.

To donate, a person must be in good health, at least 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and have photo identification. Sixteen-year-olds may donate with parental consent. Forms are available at Tomah Memorial and at the BloodCenter of Wisconsin web site.

As an extra incentive, BloodCenter of Wisconsin is offering a $10 Amazon gift card to everyone who attempts to donate.

Donors can call Tomah Memorial at 608-374-6605 or go to the hospital’s web site to schedule an appointment. Walk-ins are welcome.
