A Better Region 8: Give the 'Gift of Life'

It's that time of the year when we come on your TV and ask for your blood donations. It's the Drive for Life Blood Drive this weekend at the St. Bernards Auditorium in downtown Jonesboro.  

You've heard it before: “give the gift of life”. Think about it – when you give blood, that's exactly what you're doing. 

Blood supplies are typically low in January. Having the right blood on hand can mean the difference between life and death when someone is wheeled into the emergency room after a car accident for example. You can mean the difference between life and death. 

So join with me this weekend and give the gift of life and the Drive For Life Blood Drive with the American Red Cross. It's at the St. Bernards Auditorium downtown Friday, Saturday and Sunday. You can schedule a time to give this weekend or any time in the future. 

Be a lifesaver. You can make a difference and make this A Better Region 8.
