(Waupun) There are several community blood drives scheduled throughout the area next month.

SSM Health Waupun is hosting a drive – through ImpactLife – set for August 16th from 11am to 2pm. The drive is open to the public, but appointments are required. Donors are also asked to wear masks while at the hospital located at 620 West Brown Street.

The Columbia County Health and Human Services building is inviting the public to their building at 111 East Mullet Street in Portage to give blood on August 3rd. The drive will be held between 9am and 2pm. If giving blood, officials say to eat a healthy meal and drink plenty of water beforehand.
