Donate blood, get a chance at state fair tickets

WATERLOO (KWWL)-- It is estimated 85% of people in the U.S. will need a blood transfusion at some point in their lives and the need for blood is great.

The Red Cross would like people to do their "fair share" to boost the blood supply in the U.S.

So the Waterloo Blood Donation Center is entering people who donate into a raffle for free tickets to the Iowa State Fair.

To help donors get into the fair spirit, the donation center has added Cracker Jacks to the refreshment area.

The center is open Mondays, and Wednesday through Saturday.

The raffle will happen every day until the end of the month.

Donors need to be at least 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in generally good health.
