They say this is the season of giving and nothing could be better than the gift of life. That is exactly what happens when you donate blood. Sometimes, when you give something, you will get something in return. Giving blood in Hendersonville could win you airline tickets. Yes, you read that right. If you come to the City of Hendersonville Water & Sewer's Activity Room on Thursday, December 8, 2011 to donate blood between 10am and 3pm, you will be eligible to receive one of three pairs of roundtrip airline tickets from Delta Air Lines.
The American Red Cross will be on hand to take your donation. Unfortunately, there is never a shortage of need for blood but there is a critical shortage of blood available. All blood types are welcome. To find out if you are eligible to give blood, please visit the American Red Cross website here. Walk-ins are always welcome but an appointment is preferred. To make an appointment, simply call 697-3073 and speak to Sharon. Make sure to bring your Red Cross ID if you have one. If not, a regular photo ID will work.
Not only will you be saving a life, but giving blood in Hendersonville could win you airline tickets as well. That's not a bad deal no matter how you look at it. You never know. The life you save may be your own. Happy Holidays, everybody!
