BloodCenter of Wisconsin partners with Mt. Olympus to thank blood donors

Milwaukee – March 27, 2018

Milwaukee – March 27, 2018 – In a gesture of thanks to blood donors for their generosity, BloodCenter of Wisconsin, part of Versiti, is offering donors special savings on a favorite summertime spot.

During April, BloodCenter and Mt. Olympus Water and Theme Park in Wisconsin Dells, will offer all attempting blood donors a coupon for four free outdoor waterpark passes. Coupons will be offered at BloodCenter’s community blood drives and donor centers located in downtown Milwaukee, Wauwatosa, Greenfield, Waukesha, Racine, Kenosha, West Bend, Manitowoc and Marshfield.

The coupons are available from April 1 through April 30, while supplies last. The coupons are valid at Mt. Olympus from May 26 through July 1, 2018 (not valid June 30) and can be redeemed at the park.

BloodCenter is the exclusive supplier of blood to every hospital in Southeastern Wisconsin, and a total of 56 hospitals across 31 counties statewide. Donors of all different blood types are needed, but there is an especially great need for O negative donors. O negative is the universal blood type that is used in emergency situations and is given to trauma patients and newborn babies.

Blood donors can schedule an appointment at bcw.edu or by calling 1-877-BE-A-HERO.
