Free same-day zoo admission offered at 13th annual Milwaukee County Zoo Blood Drive

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The American Red Cross invites eligible donors to roll up a sleeve during the 13th annual Milwaukee County Zoo Blood Drive Monday, June 18, and Tuesday, June 19, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the zoo’s Peck Center, 10001 W. Bluemound Road, in Milwaukee.

“Blood donations often decline during the summer months when donors are vacationing and schools are out of session,” said Laura McGuire, external communications manager of the Red Cross Badger-Hawkeye Blood Services Region. “The Milwaukee Zoo Blood Drive is a great place to make a real difference in the lives of people in Milwaukee.”

All presenting donors will receive free same-day zoo admission, free parking, and free childcare.

Nearly 1,279 donations have been collected since this drive’s inception. With 279 donations expected to be collected on June 18 and 19, this blood drive could surpass a 1,500th donation milestone.
