Three Eagles Communications, Red Cross ask Columbus blood donors to Rock ‘N Roll Up Your Sleeve
June 18, 2013
COLUMBUS, Neb. — American Red Cross blood donors rock! Join Three Eagles Communications and the American Red Cross for the Rock ‘N Roll Up Your Sleeve Blood Drive on Saturday, June 29 in Columbus.
Rock ‘N Roll Up Your Sleeve Blood Drive:
Saturday, June 29 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Holiday Inn Express at 523 East 23rd Street in Columbus
All presenting donors will receive a free Rock ‘N Roll Up Your Sleeve T-shirt and can enter to win prizes from Three Eagles Communications. And, donors will be treated to Casey’s doughnuts and Valentino’s pizza.
The Rock ‘N Roll Up Your Sleeve Blood Drive comes at an important time for the Red Cross. Historically, during the summer months of June, July and August, about two fewer donors give blood at each Red Cross blood drive than what patients need. But, this seasonal challenge can be overcome two generous donors at a time, at every blood drive, every day.
Let the good times roll and be a lifesaver. Make an appointment by calling 1-800-RED CROSS or visiting redcrossblood.org.
