WITN Blood Drive to aid critical shortage on Wednesday, February 13th

The American Red Cross is facing a critical blood shortage and we’re hoping you will share the love next Wednesday, the day before Valentine’s Day, and join us for a blood drive here at WITN.

The Red Cross Bloodmobile will be parked in front of the WITN studio located at 275 East Arlington Boulevard in Greenville from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, February 13th.

To schedule an appointment, visit redcrossblood.org and use the sponsor code: WITN or click here.

The Red Cross must collect more than 13,000 blood donations every day for patients at approximately 2,600 hospitals across the country, including those here in Eastern North Carolina. And right now, they are in a serious shortage.

The Red Cross, WITN and Simply Natural Creamery are teaming up to help end this shortage.

Every donor will receive a free pint of ice cream from Simply Natural Creamery and a heart-shaped biscuit. The Red Cross will also raffle off a $50 Amazon gift card to one lucky donor!

The American Red Cross and WITN thank you in advance for sharing the love this Valentine’s Day and giving a priceless gift that can save a life.
