In football terms, this is one drive in which ending in the red zone is good: Those who donate blood will receive one free ticket to a Washington Redskins game.
The blood drive, hosted by the Redskins and the American Red Cross, will be held on Friday, Oct. 12, from noon to 7 p.m. at the Columbia Gym, located at 6151 Daylong Lane in Clarksville.
The need for blood is constant, and only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in our community. Nationwide, someone needs a unit of blood every two to three seconds, and most of us will need blood in our lifetime.
