YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – The holidays are the time of year when people delay giving blood, which is why two blood drives are being planned by the Mahoning Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross.
The first blood drive will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday at Packard Music Hall, 1703 Mahoning Ave. in Warren. Donors will receive a coupon for a free Panera Pick 2 combination, a travel tumbler and other prizes. There also will be raffle prizes and food.
The second blood drive will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Dec. 22 at Stambaugh Auditorium, 1000 Fifth Ave. in Youngstown. Donors will be entered into a drawing to win one of 50 pairs of tickets to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert on Jan. 2 at the Covelli Centre.
