The American Red Cross and Delta Air Lines are partnering during the months of January, February and March for the “Runway Getaway” promotion. All presenting volunteer donors Jan. 1-March 31 will be entered into a regional drawing for a chance to win one of three pairs of domestic roundtrip tickets courtesy of Delta Air Lines.

“Delta is one of our most avid corporate supporters, and we appreciate the token of appreciation they have extended to our donors,” stated Delisa English, chief executive officer for the South Carolina Blood Services Region.  “While we know our donors give because they want to help someone in need, it’s always a pleasure to provide such a great incentive to those who give so selflessly of their time and resources.”

The American Red Cross asks eligible blood donors to make or keep appointments to give blood this winter to help maintain a stable blood supply for ongoing or emergency needs. Though the winter holidays are over, the need for blood and blood products still exists. It is important that the blood supply is maintained regardless of the season because the need is constant.
