EUGENE, Ore. — If you plan to attend the Lane County Fair, there’s a way to get in for free. All you have to do is donate blood.
Lane Blood Center is offering a one-day pass to the fair to anyone who donates a pint of blood at its donor center on Willamette Street. The blood center says the drive is already bringing in new donors, which means more saved lives. Organizers say just one pint of blood can save three people
“With less than an hour of your time you can help three people so there’s not really anything else you can do that will impact so many people so directly and saves lives,” said Kristi McElhinney, Lane Blood Center Spokeswoman.
If you’d like to donate, you must be at least 16 years old. The drive lasts until July 27.
