UNDATED (WHTC) -- It's August and with the end of summer right around the corner, the American Red Cross is urging people to think about donating blood or platelets to ensure sufficient supplies for the upcoming Labor Day weekend. Show up to donate between August 26th and September 9th and you could win one of five $1000 American Express gift cards. And if you don't win you could still experience instant gratification because your blood donation could save a life. Blood drives scheduled for this week include the Third Christian Reform Church in Zeeland on Monday from noon to 6 P.M., in Holland on Tuesday at the Fifth Third Bank on 8th St. from 10 A.M. to 4 P.M. and on Wednesday, also in Holland, at the Holland Event Center from 11 A.M. to 5 P.M.
