This year, Sylvania Township will open up its annual blood drive to the public and give away Dunkin’ Donuts coffee to those who give a pint of blood.
Last year, public employees held a blood drive with the American Red Cross. This year, the donation day will be open to those willing to donate a pint or more. “The Give a Pint. Get A Pound” event will be held in conjunction with Dunkin’ Donuts.
From Dec. 24 to Jan. 3, giving a pint of blood will earn donors a 2-ounce sample brick of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee and a coupon for a free pound of coffee.
The township’s blood drive is planned from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Jan. 3 in the Sylvania Township Administration Building, large meeting room, 4927 Holland-Sylvania Rd.
To schedule an appointment call 800-Red-Cross (800-733-2767) or log onto redcrossblood.org and enter the sponsor code SYLVANIATWP.
Those interested in other blood-drive sites during the promotion period should call the Red Cross or visit redcrossblood.org.
