Red Cross, Bay City Eagles Hold Holiday Blood Drive

May 11, 2011


Donors to receive commemorative thank-you gift


Bay City, MI – The American Red Cross, in partnership with the Bay City Eagles, will host a special holiday blood drive Friday, May 27 to honor our country’s heroes and encourage others to become everyday heroes.

The Bay City Eagles have been sponsoring American Red Cross blood drives for the past year. Their first drive was in May 2010, which helped keep the blood supply of the Great Lakes Region adequate during the holiday weekend.  They will be holding another holiday blood drive from Noon to 5:45 p.m. at 350 River Road in Bay City.

The need for blood and blood products is always constant. During holiday weekends, such as Memorial Day, donor turnout is low due to vacation and celebration plans. As a special thank-you gift, all donors who come out to donate at the Bay City Eagles drive will receive a unique Holiday Heroes pin to honor their commitment to saving lives.

In addition to receiving a commemorate pin, donors at this drive also have a chance to win a $250 Meijer gift card for groceries.  Every presenting donor will also have a chance to win a $125 Lowe’s gift card as part of a Father’s Day “Dad’s to Do List” promotion.
