All American Blood Drive offers t-shirt and
chance to win Free Gas for a Year!
It’s summertime at the American Red Cross and the Fourth of July is right around the corner. That means the All American Blood Drive is coming up – a great time to give the gift of life. This year’s blood drive will take place Monday, June 27 through Saturday, July 2, in Fort Wayne. Come to donate and receive a free t-shirt and be entered into a region-wide drawing to win free gas for a year ($3000 gift card).
The All American Blood Drive offers donors a way to celebrate Independence Day while saving lives. Blood is needed year-round, but the need compounds in the summer – and particularly around holidays – when vacation-related travel and activities increase the chance of accidents and injuries that require blood for lifesaving care. We all expect the blood to be there when we need it, but only 8 percent of eligible blood donors give the gift of life. The American Red Cross encourages eligible donors to make and keep appointments to give blood during the summer to help maintain a stable blood supply.
The 2011 All American Blood Drive, sponsored by STAR 88.3 and WANE TV, will take place at two convenient Fort Wayne locations June 27 – July 2. Donors may schedule appointments by calling 1-800-RED CROSS or visiting redcrossblood.org.
