Donate blood, get free zoo tickets

(File) (File)

Hoxworth Blood Center is offering free tickets to the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens to anyone who donates blood during “Zoo Week” - July 11 until July 16.

The partnership comes during a critical time of need for blood centers. Summer months bring about an increase in blood usage and a decrease in donations, according to Hoxworth officials.

Donors will receive two free tickets.

The requirements to give blood:

Age: Be at least 17 years old. 16-year-olds may donate with parental consent

Weight: Minimum of 110 pounds.

Identification: Must provide photo I.D.

Food: Eat a good meal within four hours before giving.

Drink: Drink plenty of water or juice before and after donating.
