Cannon County Resident Wins $1,000 Gas Card from Red Cross
Paying at the Pump is Pain Free this Summer
(Nashville, Tenn., Sept. 16, 2011)
Give a pint, get a tank. Actually, Faye Crawford, of Bradyville, Tenn., is getting several tanks of free gasoline for donating blood with the American Red Cross this summer. Now that’s a deal.
Crawford is the winner of the Labor Day weekend (Sept. 2-7) $1,000 gas card giveaway. She donated blood at the Heart of Tennessee Chapter of the American Red Cross, in Murfreesboro, on Sept. 3. Congratulations Faye!
“I’ve never won anything before,” says Crawford.
Crawford started donating blood 40 years ago and gives regularly. She is blood type O-negative. O-negative is the universal donor. This means O-negative blood can be given to people of all blood types in an emergency. Only 9 percent of the population has O-negative blood.
