EATON — The Preble County YMCA in Eaton will host a community blood drive Wednesday, July 13, from 3:30-7:30 p.m. at 450 Washington Jackson Road, with a chance to win the “Wild About Alaska Adventure for Two” vacation. Donors are encouraged to schedule an appointment online at www.DonorTime.com or call 1-800-388-GIVE.
Everyone who registers to donate will receive the new “Whale of a Blood Donor” t-shirt featuring a humpback whale and Alaskan mountain range design. Everyone age 18 and older will also be entered in the Community Blood Center “Wild About Alaska Adventure for Two Summer Blood Drive” drawing to win a custom-designed Alaska vacation for two.
The grand prize includes air travel to Alaska, deluxe accommodations during your week-long stay, and options for a cruise or land travel. The vacation is for the winning donor and a travel companion.
Donors can double their chances of winning by donating early in the summer and becoming eligible to donate again. They will be entered in the drawing a second time when they register for a second donation during blood drive period through Sept. 3. Official rules are available at www.givingblood.org.
