Red, White and YOU Blood Drives – July 4th!

The Red Cross will host its annual Celebrate Freedom blood drives on Monday, July 4, 2011. The Celebrate Freedom events help give an important boost to vital blood collections during the summer. Drives will be held in Portland, Vancouver and Salem (see below for details).

This year the Celebrate Freedom 2011 blood drives will include a “Red, White, and You” t-shirt, a free apple pie from Shari’s Restaurants, and a “buy one, get one” free coupon to a Portland Timbers reserve game for all presenting blood and platelet donors (while supply lasts).*

In Portland, the newly crowned Miss Oregon 2011 will also be on-hand to greet donors and hand out apple pies. This will be her first public appearance since her crowning on the evening of July 2, 2011.

For your convenience, drives will be held at multiple locations (all on Monday, July 4). Please call 1-800-RED CROSS to reserve your appointment time or click below to schedule online for the drive closest to you.
