Give Blood Labor Day Weekend and You Could Win a $1,000 Gas Card

Close Out the Summer by Helping to Save Lives

Red Cross to Thank Random Donor with $1,000 Gas Card


Labor Day Weekend is often referred to as summer’s last hurrah.  It’s a subtle reminder that fall and cooler temperatures are headed our way.


So, as you throw the hot dogs on the grill or make one last trip to the local pool, think about how you can Be Extraordinary this Labor Day weekend.  


By visiting an American Red Cross blood donor center or blood drive, you can provide lifesaving blood to hospital patients in need.  Did you know just one blood donation can help save up to three lives?  Now, that’s extraordinary. 


The need for blood never takes a holiday, so the Red Cross invites you to give blood this Labor Day weekend.  It’s your time to Be Extraordinary.


As an extra incentive, this Labor Day weekend, anyone who presents to donate blood with the Red Cross from Sept. 2-7(Friday-Wednesday automatically entered into a drawing for a $1,000 gas card.

There is no substitute for human blood. And volunteer donors are the only lifeline for patients in need of a transfusion.  Thank you for being extraordinary this Labor Day.
