Progressive Mother’s Club and the American Red Cross have teamed up once again to bring a bloodmobile to Peabody. Donors may give blood between 2 and 6 p.m. Friday at Gracepoint Church at Seventh and Vine streets.
This year the American Red Cross has joined the country music industry to promote blood donations. Donors are automatically entered in a sweepstakes to win a trip for two to Nashville, Tenn. Included is a two-night stay at the Opryland Hotel, two VIP passes to the Grand Old Opry, and a backstage tour at the Opry House.
Donors may schedule an appointment online at http://www.redcrossblood.org. Walk-in donors are also welcome.
Donors should carry a donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification. They must be in good health, weigh at least 110 pounds, and be at least 17 years old (or 16 with a parental consent form.)
See the website or call (800) 733-2767-7 for more information.
