Red Cross sponsoring holiday blood drive

Local Cache Valley merchants and the American Red Cross have teamed up to organize a special blood drive for the holiday season. The Cache Valley Holiday Blood Drive will be held December 14 from 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM. The blood drive will be at Mountain Ridge Helicopters, 2500 N. 900 W. FL-15, Logan, Utah. All presenting donors will be eligible to enter a drawing to win one of four gift packages which include gift certificates to restaurants, basketball game tickets and a helicopter ride. A random drawing for the prize packages will be conducted at the end of the drive. Winners will be notified by telephone and/or e-mail. Bob Koger, donor recruitment representative for the Red Cross, says, “The need for blood is constant. Even when most of us are distracted by holiday activities, cancer patients need treatment, accidents happen and surgeries are scheduled. The Cache Valley Holiday Blood Drive promotion will help us to maintain the blood supply and allow our donors to have some fun too.” In Utah someone needs blood every eight minutes. The Red Cross strives to collect 440 units every day to meet the need.
