Be a hero, donate blood

The NAU Bookstore will host a blood drive from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Aug. 6 at a United Blood Services Bloodmobile in the Bookstore parking lot.

Extra incentives are being offered this summer by Coconino Parks and Recreation to motivate the community to donate. If you donate between now and Aug. 31, you will receive a voucher for one entry to the Coconino County Fair, held Sept. 4-7.

Additionally, United Blood Services is sponsoring a “Drive Away a Hero” campaign in which one lucky blood donor will drive away in a new Saturn Aura in the Sept. 23 Grand Prize Ceremony. Donors who are at least 18 years of age are automatically entered to win. Donors also receive a second entry to deposit at any Phoenix Saturn retail facility to double their chances to win.
