After Christmas Blood Drive to be Held at Secrest Auditorium


ZANESVILLE, Ohio – As Christmas
rolls around and a new year approaches, many find it easy to get lost
in the holiday hustle and bustle. However, Red Cross blood supplies
tend to dip during the most wonderful time of the year. Locally,
there will be an opportunity to donate blood to the American Red
Cross the day after Christmas at Secrest Auditorium, located in
downtown Zanesville. Rick Sabine, Director of Secrest Auditorium,
says that thanks to Dusty Guitar Promotions donors will be entered to
win tickets to a February 7th
comedy show.

the Red Cross has from Thanksgiving to New Years Day is a slow blood
drive season. So, we were happy to be a part of this and to be
involved in hosting it again this year—the day after
Christmas—December 26th.
It’s from 10 AM until 4 PM. We’re giving away t-shirts—Red
Cross t-shirts—to everyone that makes a donation; and then everyone
that makes a donation, we’re going to have a random drawing they
can register to win a pair of tickets to see comedian Rodney
Carrington here at the auditorium.”

Auditorium has been partnering with the American Red Cross for a
number of years to hold an After Christmas Blood Drive; and community
members are being encouraged to get into the spirit of giving by
donating blood.

medical conditions—accidents, emergencies don’t slow down. So,
they want to make sure they have a good supply of blood this time of
year. I think it’s important year-round to donate blood—regardless
of the season. But, it is the season of giving so give the gift of
life—give some blood.”

After Christmas Blood Drive will be held this Thursday at Secrest
Auditorium from 10 AM to 4 PM. For more information or to make an
