The 30th Annual MASH Blood Drive is taking place at Houdini Plaza in Appleton all day Wednesday.  The Community Blood Center does over 1,000 blood drives a year, and this is their largest one.  The event, named after the popular television show “M.A.S.H.”, began in 1989 with the goal of building an adequate supply of blood for the community heading into the 4th of July holiday.  Over 400 people are expected at this year’s drive which includes live music, giveaways, and even classic video arcade games that visitors can play.

Everyone is invited to attend.

“Anyone that’s over the age of 17, weighs at least 110 pounds can donate in general,” said CBC President and CEO John Hagins. “As long as they’re in generally good health, we’ll do the screening. We’re looking for all blood types, but in particular O-Negative. O-Negative is the universal donor.”

If you’d like to donate blood, the Mash Blood Drive is open until 6 pm Wednesday evening.
