You can give the gift of life when donating blood, particularly at times when nationwide blood supplies are low.
On Monday, you can also get a gift in return.
The Mount Airy News is sponsoring a blood drive that day at the American Red Cross office in Mount Airy, and those who donate blood will be able to get a $5 Target eGiftCard.
Donors must have a valid email address in order to receive the gift card. The blood drive is at the American Red Cross office at 844 Westlake Drive in Mount Airy, from 1:30 – 6 p.m.
