Local News

The Red Cross is in need of blood donations and in exchange they’re gifting free Amazon gift cards. 

The gift cards will be loaded with $5 on it for any qualifying donation between now and August 30. 

Red Cross representatives say every two seconds, there’s someone in the US who is in need of blood and the donations run dry in the Summer months. 

“As a way to say thank you to our donors, we know that donors do spend about an hour of time with us giving the gift of life and blood cannot be manufactured, we can only get it is through one another,” says American Red Cross External Communications Manager Laura McGuire.

McGuire says there is a particular need for O-blood, but any donation is appreciated.
