Celebrate Freedom, Give Blood

Fireworks. Blues festivals. BBQs. Blood drives.

Sure, one of these things is not like the others, but they’re all activities planned for the upcoming 4th of July holiday. Learn how you can celebrate freedom by giving blood right here.

If you need more convincing, you should know that an average of 39,000 units of red blood cells are needed for patients in the United States, even on holidays. And with gas prices being what they are, people are less inclined than ever to jump in their car and drive to a donor center.

Presenting donors that make the drive will receive a 2-for-1 ticket voucher to an upcoming Beavers game, a free apple pie, an event t-shirt and an all-beef hot dog while supplies last. Find out if you’re eligible and consider signing up.
