Friday, August 30th, 2013 at 6:52 am

With the arrival of Labor Day and the unofficial end to summer, the American Red Cross encourages eligible donors to roll up a sleeve and give blood or platelets to help ensure sufficient supplies, and to encourage donations, the Red Cross is throwing out some prizes.

Those who present to donate between Aug. 26 and Sept. 9 could win one of five $1,000 American Express gift cards, and all donors will walk away with the instant gratification that they may be helping to save more than one life. Several opportunities in that date range are approaching in our area next week.
