Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs blood.

You can help save lives by making a blood donation at the Chestnut Grove Community Center on Monday, February 20, from 2 to 6:30 p.m.

All donors will receive a $10 Amazon.com Gift Card by email, thanks to the support of Amazon. Donors will be automatically entered for a chance to win a trip for two to Florida, including round-trip airfare, a three-night stay at the Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach and a $100 voucher for the resort’s Ocean Hai restaurant, plus a $750 gift card for expenses. Details are available at rcblood.org/heart.

Chestnut Grove Community Center is located at 223 Chestnut Grove Road, Statesville.

Make a difference in our community and beyond and help ensure blood is on the shelves before it is needed for trauma victims, transplant recipients and those being treated for cancer and sickle cell disease.
