4th of July Blood Drive

Still interested in that ticket to summer fun? Good news! You can get one step closer by scheduling an appointment for our 4th of July Week Blood Drive.

In the spirit of the patriots who offered their “…lives, fortunes, and sacred honor…,” the American Red Cross is providing an opportunity on July 2, 2012 for Salt Lake City area residents to give blood at a special Fourth of July week blood drive. Blood supply inventories are at critically low levels, almost half the amount of readily available blood compared to last year. Donations are down in the first five months of 2012. The declining inventory of available blood products is most significant for types O+, O-, A- and B-.

Radio station “The Cowboy” FM104.3 (KSOP) will broadcast live from 8:00 – 10:00 AM at the Salt Lake Donor Center on July 2 during the first two hours of the blood drive which runs until 5:00 PM. All presenting donors will be eligible to enter the Ticket to Summer Fun drawing for a chance to win a $100 Ticketmaster gift certificate. Donors will also be entered in a drawing for a chance to win tickets to Thanksgiving Point or a package of fireworks.
