Cedar Rapids Holiday Blood Drive
Cedar Rapids, IA 52402
The American Red Cross is encouraging Cedar Rapids residents to think outside the box this holiday season and give the perfect gift – a potentially lifesaving blood donation. Hospital patients in Iowa and across the country will benefit from those who roll up their sleeves and donate blood at the Cedar Rapids Holiday Blood Drive on Wednesday, December 21 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Cedar Rapids Marriott Hotel.
“For many years, generous community members have helped boost the blood supply during the busy holiday season,” said Greg Novinska, CEO of the Red Cross Badger-Hawkeye Blood Services Region. “Donating blood can save up to three lives and the only cost is about an hour of your time. To a hospital patient in need, time is everything.”
All presenting donors will receive a complimentary holiday pie while supplies last and can enjoy special refreshments from Olive Garden, Pizza Hut, Perkins & the Village Inn.
