Church to host blood drive
The Urbana Church of Christ in Christian Union will host a community blood drive from 3 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 19, in the Fellowship Hall, 1101 N. Main St.
Donors will have 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 a 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 the May 2 through Sept. 3 blood drive period. Official rules are available at www.givingblood.org.
