To encourage blood donations during the summer months, LifeServe Blood Center is offering free T-shirts to anyone who donates between now and the end of August.
These limited edition "Starve a Mosquito - Donate Blood" shirts are available from LifeServe's online store for 100 points. Donors earn 100 points per blood donation and can earn more points at a time for different kinds of donations.
See www.lifeservebloodcenter.org for more details.
The Dayton Community Blood Drive will be from 3 to 7 p.m. Wednesday at Dayton Community Center, First Avenue Northwest.
The Gowrie Community Blood Drive will be 2:30 to 6:15 p.m. Thursday at Gowrie Community Center, Market Street.
The T-shirt promotion is tied to a time of year when blood donations historically lessen, though the need for blood remains constant.
For more information about blood donation or to schedule an appointment to donate blood, call (800) 287-4903 or visit the website.
