Blood drive Tuesday

By The Herald Staff | 8/8/2014

Donating at a blood drive next week in Ottawa could be one donor’s ticket to a Disney World vacation for four.

Community Blood Center is planning a drive 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday in the conference rooms at Ransom Memorial Hospital, 1301 S. Main St., Ottawa. Those who give through the center between June 1 and Sept. 1 are eligible to win a Disney World Family Adventure worth $10,470. The trip includes round-trip airfare, accommodations for four nights at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Orlando and a $1,050 Disney gift card redeemable for park admission, food and souvenirs, according to the Community Blood Center.

But there’s another reason to give, blood drive organizers said.

“Patients at 70 local hospitals are counting on your community,” the center said in a news release. “One in three of us will need a blood transfusion in our lifetime. Make sure blood is there for those needing it now. In less than an hour, you’ll save two lives in your community.”
