Leading the Way by Donating Blood

Did you know that The American Legion is the largest collective blood-donor to the Red Cross? The American Legion adopted Resolution 33, calling for our organization to assist in Homeland Security preparedness - the blood supply is a matter of Homeland Security.

The most important part about donating blood is to remember that it saves lives.  Waiting for an emergency to donate will not get the blood to the receiver in time.

The American Legion, Department Holds Blood Drives at many of our events. This year's schedule is as follows:

  • Department Convention- Friday, July 17, 2020 from 9 AM-2 PM at the Red Lion Paper Valley in Appleton, WI
  • Celebration of Freedom- Saturday September 12, 2020 from 9 AM-2 PM at Veterans Memorial Field in Portage, WI.
