Bills this summer making you sweat? Present to donate blood during the American Red Cross “Super Summer Save” campaign June 1 through July 31 for your chance to win one of two $3,000 American Express gift cards useable toward rent, mortgage payments, food or gas, and take a break from what’s breaking the bank.
Thousands of people donate blood in our area each year, and their generous gift has saved countless lives. However, the need for blood is constant. During the summer season, the blood supply often suffers, as many donors are on vacation or participating in seasonal activities. With drives held every week throughout Cherokee and Clay Counties, there are countless opportunities for donors to take a little time out of their schedules to donate a unit of blood and save the lives of up to three people.
