As a special thank-you, when donors give blood, they’ll automatically be entered for a chance to win a $1,000 e-gift card to a merchant of their choice!

Those who come in to give will also automatically be entered to win a very special prize package that includes four premium tickets to the 2022 Indianapolis 500® Mile Race; four Garage & Pit Credentials and passes to attend a meet and greet opportunity with driver(s); round-trip airfare to Indianapolis, Indiana; three-night hotel accommodations (May 27-30, 2022); plus a $500 gift card for expenses!

The need for blood is constant and only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in our community. Nationwide, someone needs a unit of blood every 2 to 3 seconds and most of us will need blood in our lifetime.

Thank you for supporting the American Red Cross blood program!

Download the Red Cross Blood Donor App on the App Store, Google Play or text BLOODAPP to 90999. Schedule appointments, view your blood type and results of your mini-physical, and track your donations.

The Madison Writing Assistance (MWA) program offers free, one-to-one writing support for community members, traditionally at libraries and neighborhood centers throughout the city, and now online. 

For the health and safety of our community, all MWA writing support will be offered remotely through the fall. Options for remote writing assistance include:

  • conversation over the phone
  • face-to-face conversation via Google Meet
  • written feedback via email

To make an appointment, please visit MWA's Appointment Center or call 608-315-5151.

MWA services are made possible through generous donations from the Evjue Foundation, the UW Anonymous Fund, and Altrusa International of Madison, along with administrative and program support from the UW-Madison English Department, the UW-Madison Writing Center, and our library and neighborhood center partners.
