Red Alert! Literally! The Red Cross is at a 10 year low for blood supplies!  Officials are calling it the worst shortage in more than a decade and they say patient care is being affected.

The Red Cross call to action is to make an appointment to give and make a resolution to continue to give year-round.  Those who come to give this month will be automatically entered to win two tickets to Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles, California!*

The package includes two tickets to Super Bowl LVI in Los Angeles, California, entry to the official NFL Tailgate, tickets to Super Bowl Experience, round-trip airfare to Los Angeles, three-night hotel accommodations (Feb. 11-14, 2022), plus a $500 gift card for expenses.

If you don't win tickets to go to the game, you could win a big home entertainment system upgrade on which you could watch the game!  The Red Cross says if you come in to give in January, you will also be automatically entered to win the Big Game at Home package to enjoy an awesome viewing experience! The home theater package will include a smart, short-throw laser projector; projector screen; soundbar; subwoofer; gift card for tech support with installation, and a $500 e-gift card to put toward food and fun.

It's been more than ten years since the American Red Cross has seen such a low blood supply. That’s concerning, but by giving just about an hour of your time, you can be a game-changer for patients waiting for crucial surgeries.

Various days and times available.
