ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR)– The American Red Cross needs blood donations. Over the past year, the number of donors has decreased. During the summer months, there is an increase in injuries and accidents due to people being more active.
To help sweeten the deal and entice donors, The Southwest Chapter of The American Red Cross teamed up with Dunkin’ Donuts to thank blood donors with a free treat when they give blood. Jackie Grant, the Executive Director of the Southwest Chapter of The American Red Cross tells us how you can get your hands on this free reward and the importance of giving during August.
