The on Main Street in the heart of the village is playing host to a very important cause on Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon.
The BloodCenter of Wisconsin is setting up shop at the local fire department so Sussex-area residents can make a life-saving donation. According to the BloodCenter's website, nearly 800 donors are needed every day to maintain the demand from hospitals the center supplies.
And with summer being one of the lulls in donations, the BloodCenter is ramping up opportunities for residents to help.
If you're interested in donating blood on Saturday morning, make an appointment on the BloodCenter's website, or call Greg Zoellick at (262) 246-5220 and he will assist you.
