Red Cross Needs More Blood-Offers Chance for Trip to Hawaii

 

Red Cross

Annapolis, MD (WNAV)–Ashley Henyan says that the need for blood is increasing in Maryland as hospitals are performing more surgeries than they’ve put off doing because of Covid19. Plus, blood has a limited shelf life and needs to be tossed out. She says that the Red Cross is holding numerous blood drives in Annapolis and Anne Arundel Counties in order to beef up supplies.  And, during November, those who donate blood get a chance to be entered into a sweepstake for a trip to Hawaii plus some spending money to use while on that trip.

From the Red Cross Press Release:

In honor of the new series, I Know What You Did Last Summer, those who come to give Nov. 1-12, 2021, will automatically be entered to win a trip for two to Hawaii, courtesy of Amazon Prime Video.* The trip will transport you to where the series was filmed and includes round-trip airfare for two, hotel accommodations for nine nights, meals, $1,000 gift card for expenses and on-trip transportation with tour stops from Honolulu to Maui. Plus, those who come to donate Nov. 1-23 will receive a $10 Amazon.com Gift Card* by email, thanks to Amazon.**

 

Donors are urged to schedule an appointment now by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
