HANNIBAL — The American Red Cross will hold a blood drive from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at American Legion Post 55, 3819 Highway MM in Hannibal.

Each person who donates will receive via e-mail a $5 Amazon Gift Card and a free t-shirt. There will also be a drawing for two donors to win one of two $100 gift certificates in Hannibal Chamber of Commerce Chamber Bucks.

This time of year, the need for blood donors is urgent, according to the American Red Cross. Holiday traveling and holiday schedules put a strain on the inventory.

Donors can make an appointment to be a blood donor and to Give The Gift Of Life.

More information is available by calling 1-800-REDCROSS or visiting online at www.redcrossblood.org.
