WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, (WVDN) – Big Draft Brewing Company in White Sulphur Springs is hosting a Pint for Pint Blood Drive event on Friday, Jan. 20, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.
According to Big Draft Brewing’s website, individuals who donate will receive a free pint or a 5% coupon on a full menu item. The offer is not transferable and not redeemable for cash.
Eligible type O, B negative or A negative donating people are asked to consider making a Power Red donation. According to the American Red Cross, donating red blood cells through a Power Red Donation allows individuals to safely donate two units during one session. A Power Red Donation is similar to a whole blood donation, with one exception. A special machine is used to remove the red blood cells while returning the platelets and plasma to the donor.
Additionally, interested people can streamline their donation and save up to 15 minutes by visiting RedCrossBlood.org/RapidPass. This page allows visitors to complete health history questions and pre-donation reading before heading to Draft Brewing.
To schedule an appointment, call 1-800-Red Cross (1-800-733-2767) or go to the Red Cross website at RedCrossBlood.org. To see the event page, visit bigdraftbrewingevents.com.
