Summer will soon fade into fall, a perfect time to replenish the blood supply after donorship drops and need rises during the busy, warm season. The Richland County Chapter of the American Red Cross held a blood drive Friday outside the former Lazarus store in the Richland Mall. It was co-sponsored by WMFD-TV and WVNO MIX-106 FM. Red Cross Donor Recruitment Representative Bill Doehla says summer is a time when people get too busy to donate, yet more people are injured while in participating in outdoor activities. The Red Cross hoped to generate at least fifty pints of blood during the six-hour drive. Donors were given goodies for their contributions including a buy-one get-one-free coupon to the Columbus Zoo, a chance to enter drawings for a pair of Ohio State football tickets and for Fort Rapid Water Park tickets, and a T-shirt.
