January AMERICAN RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVES

The American Red Cross Scioto Valley Chapter House, North Bridge Street, Chillicothe, Ohio

Presented by Hometown-Motors, Inc.

Donors of all blood types are urged to give now to help the American Red Cross maintain the blood supply. Medical conditions and emergencies don’t stop for a pandemic or winter weather. No matter your blood type, you’re somebody’s type. This is the perfect month to make a heartwarming gesture and donate blood. Amazon is thanking donors Feb. 1st-28th with a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card by email. Restrictions apply. Additional information and details are available at rcblood.org/together. The Red Cross is testing blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies. As part of this effort, plasma from standard blood donations that test positive for COVID-19 antibodies may now help current coronavirus patients in need of convalescent plasma transfusions. There aren’t enough people donating blood to help patients in need. You can help by encouraging others to sign up to donate blood.

Donors who come to give through January 31st will automatically be entered for a chance to win an exciting 2022 Super Bowl LVI getaway in LA for them and a guest! The package will include two tickets to Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles, California, entry to the official NFL Tailgate, tickets to Super Bowl Experience, round-trip airfare to Los Angeles, three-night hotel accommodations (Feb. 4th to Feb. 7th, 2022), plus a $500 gift card for expenses.

As an extra thank you from the Red Cross, donors who come to give through  January 20th, 2021, will also be automatically entered to win the Big Game at Home package so their household can enjoy an awesome viewing experience safely at home this year.** The package will include a 65-inch television and a $500 gift card to put toward food and fun. *Terms apply, visit RedCrossBlood.org/SuperBowl.
