Valentine's Blood Drive

Updated: Thursday, February 13 2014, 10:39 AM CST
Giving the gift of life could pay off big. It's all part of the "Be A Sweetheart and Give Blood" promotion.

If you give blood today at the Central Illinois Community Blood Center, you are eligible for prizes worth hundreds of dollars.

How about a jewelry shopping spree? Or restaurant gift cards? Even flowers from a local florist just in time for Valentines Day.

The promotion is an attempt to make up for other blood drives that were cancelled, because of the severe winter weather and lost donations.

"Everyone who donates today is automatically entered to win one of those gift certificates that we have. You'll also receive a t-shirt, and it's our way of saying thank you for donating today. We will be drawing those winners after the end of business today at 9:00, so they'll be announced sometime during this week," said Anna McFarland, spokesperson for Central Illinois Community Blood Center.

The Springfield Donor Center on South Seventh Street is staying open until 9:00 p.m. tonight to accommodate anyone who wants to donate blood. Valentine's Blood Drive
