Donating blood and helping save lives doesn’t have to be as serious as it sounds. The Red Cross is encouraging people to donate blood and have some fun by rocking out at the 2011 Vans Warped Tour! Concert-goers – drop by the Red Cross booth this Saturday or Sunday as we thank donors and volunteers at The Gorge and Hillsboro tour locations.
“We here at the Red Cross know that blood donors rock, and we want to thank them for their generosity by providing fun gifts like Warped Tour VIP vouchers,” says Red Cross Donor Services Manager Tim Lippert.
The Red Cross traditionally sees a drop in blood donations during the summer months when donors become busy with vacations and other activities. As donations decrease, the need for blood does not. People interested in helping to maintain an adequate blood supply during the summer are urged to make an appointment to donate blood by visiting redcrossblood.org
