WITN hosts "Pint for a Pint" blood drive

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - It's the season of giving and that could include the simple gift of giving life to someone in need.

When you give blood at the WITN studio on Tuesday, December 4, you will receive a free pint of ice cream from Simply Natural Creamery.

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.- 1 p.m.

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.

The American Red Cross and WITN thank you in advance for sharing this priceless gift that can forever change a life.
