Red Cross handing out $5 Amazon gift cards to blood donors

Local News

Anyone who gives blood or platelets with the American Red Cross between today and August 29 will receive a $5 Amazon Gift Card via email.

Currently, the Red Cross has less than a three-day supply of most blood types available and less than a two-day supply of type O blood.

Individuals can schedule an appointment to give now by activating Amazon’s Alexa Red Cross Blood Skill by saying, “Alexa, find a blood drive,” or by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org, or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
