Versiti Blood Center of Wisconsin and Tremper High School will host the 41st annual Tremper High School Blood Drive on Thursday, March 9. 

This one-of-a-kind event is the largest student-led blood drive in Wisconsin. Tremper and Versiti hope to welcome more than 1,000 blood donors, potentially saving up to 3,000 Wisconsinites in need of lifesaving blood.

As a token of gratitude, all attempting donors will receive a BOGO coupon from Noodles & Company, while supplies last, plus refreshments and other prizes. Free parking will be provided.

"For more than 40 years, Tremper High School students have been leading the way when it comes to encouraging blood donations," said Jasmine M. Johnson, area vice president and director of donor services, Versiti. "This student-powered event brings the community, students, faculty and staff together to help save thousands of lives, and we are so grateful for the students hardwork and dedication."
