It was a pint for a pound today at Hollywood Casino in Bangor, as volunteers offered their blood to the Red Cross, in exchange for a pound of Dunkin Donuts coffee.
This is a frequent scene at the casino, as several blood drives are held with the Red Cross each year. But now in particular, following recent natural disasters across the nation, donations aren't only valuable, they're vital.
The blood drive was open to both the public, and employees of Hollywood Casino. For future dates you can check their website, www.hollywood casino bangor.com.
