Each year in May the Woodbury Lions Club host an American Red Cross Blood Drive that honors our local heroes.
Cannon County community supports this blood drive with door prizes for all who come out to donate.Gift Certificates, Gift Cards, free meals, free services such as oil changes, hair cuts, tanning sessions, and massages are among the door prizes along with different companies logo merchandise like pens, calendars, key chains, hats, and tee shirts for all.
Last year each donor was able to receive three door prizes plus receive a package of five items when they signed in. This year is looking to be even better. At the end of the Blood Drive, all donors names will be put in a drawing and one will win a One Hundred ($100.00) Dollar Gift Card.
Your blood can actually save three different people with a pint donation. Blood is a Live Saver, the Gift of Life, and donating will make you someone's hero. Look at all your friends and family, someone that you know has been given blood, blood that helped them to live longer, their heroes are nameless to them, but they know someone gave up blood to save them.
The Woodbury Lions Club host six blood drives each year, one every other month. Except for the Donor Appreciation Blood Drive, all start at Noon and ends at 6 p.m.
The May blood drive will expand three hours by starting at 9 am giving a little more time for some who normally can not make it between 12-6. The Lions Club hopes to see you on Thursday, May 19th.
