The American Red Cross is making another appeal for blood donors. By giving the gift of life this holiday weekend could help you save money on gas. The "Labor of Love" blood drive kicks off today and continues Sunday through Wednesday. To encourage donors, the Red Cross will give them a chance to win a $1000 Gas Card. Each donor will also walk away with door prizes. The Red Cross says the need for blood increases with each busy travel holiday. Shannon Jordan, from American Red Cross said, "People say I'll get to it later or I just don't have the time, but when you or your family member needs blood, the hospital doesn't say I just don't have the time right now. It really is so important." Shannon said one pint of blood can save three lives. For more information on donating, call the local Red Cross Chapter at 254-GIVE.
