When it comes to saving lives, Eagles fans know the play!

More than 500 volunteer blood donors visited Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday, December 1, 2012, for the 5th Annual Philadelphia Eagles American Red Cross Blood Drive. 

All presenting blood donors received a limited edition Special Event Todd Herremans #79 Eagles Jersey Style T-Shirt and six lucky donors were randomly selected to win a pair of Eagles tickets to the 2013 Season Home Opener.

Philadelphia Eagles starting Offensive Lineman Todd Herremans, Eagles Alumni Fred Barnett, Bill Bergey and Vince Papale all visited with blood donors, taking pictures and signing autographs throughout the day.

To date, fans have donated approximately 4,000 units of blood at
Eagles Blood Drives – providing a second chance for more than 11,000 hospital patients across the Philadelphia Region.
