Greensboro - The WFMY News 2's Holiday Blood Drive is on Tuesday at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex, providing the perfect opportunity to give the gift of life during the holidays.
Why Donate Blood?
Help us keep a safe and adequate blood supply within our community by surpassing our goal of 540 pints. One pint of blood does not only help up to three people celebrate another holiday, but it could also give them a second chance at life. The American Red Cross Carolinas Blood Services Region provides life-saving blood to over 103 hospitals. Accident victims as well as patients with cancer, sickle cell disease, blood disorders, and other illnesses receive life-saving transfusions every day.
Who Can Donate Blood?
Blood can be safely donated every 56 days. Most healthy people age 17 and older, who weigh at least 110 pounds are eligible to donate blood at the WFMY News 2 Holiday Blood Drive. Additional weight requirements apply for donors 18 years old and younger and all high school donors.
You Can Win!
When you sign in to donate at the Holiday Blood Drive, you can register to win this elegant Garnet and Diamond earring and matching pendant set by Stanton Color, courtesy of Schiffman's Jewelers. (Approximate Retail value is $1,695.)
