Hoxworth Blood Center gives donors the chance to win free gas

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The University of Cincinnati's Hoxworth Blood Center is giving donors the chance to win free gas for a year.

From Monday, Feb. 20 to Saturday, March 3, each donor will automatically be registered for a chance to win a Speedway Gift Card valued at $2,600, or $50 a week.

Donors must be in good health, at least 17-years-old (or 16 with signed parental consent), weighing at least 110 pounds, and must provide identification at the time of donation.  Donors should eat a meal and drink plenty of water within four hours of coming in.  Hoxworth does accept walk-ins, but making an appointment is highly encouraged.

Hoxworth Blood Center at the University of Cincinnati serves hospitals all over Southwestern Ohio, Northern Kentucky, and Southeastern Indiana.  It collects over 90,000 units of blood each year.
