The Community Blood Bank will host a blood drive from 3-6 p.m. Monday at the Frewsburg American Legion.
Labor Day Weekend is normally one of the three worst weekends of the year for blood usage, so blood bank officials want to be sure the area has a safe blood supply before the holiday weekend. The local blood supply has been in and out of shortage territory for about a month now.
Through Aug. 31, those who donate blood at any Community Blood Bank blood drive can enter to win a trip to Walt Disney World in Orlando, a trip that includes airfare, hotel stay at a Disney hotel and four Park-Hopper tickets to Disney parks for four people.
"Labor Day weekend is approaching fast and we need to be ready," said Dan Desrochers, Community Blood Bank spokesperson. "Hopefully our Give Blood: Go To Disney! promotion will give us a little magic."
The Community Blood Bank is licensed by the federal Food and Drug Administration and holds permits from the New York Department of Health and the Pennsylvania Department of Health. It is accredited by the AABB and CLIA and is a member of America's Blood Centers.
