Civil War Blood Drive Kicks Off

EUGENE, Ore. — Die-hard fans often say they bleed Beaver orange or Duck green. Now’s the time to prove it.

The 11th annual Civil War blood drive kicked off all across the state Thursday. Fans filed into the blood banks, like Lane Blood Center, to give blood for either the Ducks or the Beavers.

The competition could win a lucky donor a pair of Civil War game tickets, but the Lane Blood Center wins too.

“The timing of the Civil War Blood Drive is perfect for us because around the holidays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, people don’t give as often, so the donations from Civil War Blood Drive get us just through the holidays,” said Kristi McElhinney, Lane Blood Center.

You can vote for your team by donating at Lane Blood Center or your local blood bank.
