Red Cross to host July blood drives


June 13, 2013
GREATER SPRINGFIELD — The American Red Cross will host several community blood drives during the month of July. All eligible and new blood donors are encouraged to give blood. Blood donors are needed every day to ensure an adequate blood supply for patients in need.

The summer months can be a challenging time for blood collections. Donations tend to decline due to high school and college vacations, summer travel and other planned activities. However, the blood needs of hospital patients do not get a vacation.

In July, all presenting donors will receive a coupon for $2.50 off the purchase of a 48 ounce container of Turkey Hill's All Natural Ice Cream. Come out to donate blood and you will also have the chance to win two Boston Red Sox tickets and to be honored at Fenway Park as the Blood Donor of the Game!

Prizes are non-transferrable and not redeemable for cash. To make an appointment to donate blood, please call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or log onto www.redcrossblood.org.
