The American Red Cross hopes to rev up blood donations by offering a chance to win prizes.
Anyone who donates blood at a Red Cross donor center or blood drive is automatically entered to win a $100 gas card. One is given each day until Sept. 15.
Lawrence area residents will get a chance to win during a blood drive from noon to 6 p.m. Sept. 9 at First Christian Church, 1000 Ky.
Donors also will receive a free Red Crossing Racing hat.
To schedule an appointment, visit redcrossblood.org or call 800-733-2767.
Donors also can register online at www.redcrossracing.com for its national donor rewards program, which allows users to accrue points and exchange the points for prizes.
