PENSACOLA — People who donate this Thursday and Friday at any One Blood/Northwest Florida Blood Services Center could help save three lives and take home something extra.

On Nov. 15 and 16, each blood donor will get a $5 Winn Dixie Gift Card, a wellness check and a cholesterol screening. Donors are eligible to enter the drawing for a 2012 Kia Soul as well, courtesy of Kia Autosport.

The Crestview center hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday at 2400 S. Ferdon Blvd., Suite B (behind Dunkin Donuts).

Blood donations go to our local hospitals and could literally save the lives of patients who need transfusions for emergencies, traumas, surgeries and cancer treatment. Support the needs of your community by donating blood.

Healthy people age 16 or older who weigh at least 110 pounds can donate blood. Call 306-2455 for details.
