What better way to start the holiday weekend than by giving blood? OneBlood centers are encouraging donors to give blood throughout the week by giving a promotional big red towel and a $10 e-gift card that donors can use at local restaurants or stores.
Chad Holliday, a local donor, says he doesn't give blood for the promotional gifts. "They send me a reminder e-mail, telling me it's time to give blood again, or platelets, plasma, depending...I just come in and give," he says. "I mean, I got a whole dresser drawer full of shirts and all kinds of promotions but it's, like I said, I just do it just because I can give blood."
Here's a list of OneBlood centers in our area:
