LIVERMORE FALLS – An American Red Cross blood drive has been scheduled for noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 13, at Murray Hall, Route 4. The American Red Cross is offering blood donors the opportunity to “Warm A Heart, Warm Your Home.” All who go to donate blood can enter to win $200 toward the cost of heating their home.

“Giving blood is a heartwarming experience,” said Sue Parmer, CEO of the American Red Cross Blood Services, Northeast Division. “In addition to warming their hearts, we wanted to thank our blood donors by warming their homes.”

From December to March, all presenting blood donors across Maine will have the opportunity to enter to win the drawing. A winner is drawn each month. Whether the fuel source is home heating oil, natural gas or electricity, the American Red Cross will contact the winner’s utility company and pay for an upcoming heating bill.

Potential donors must be at least 17 years old, weigh 110 pounds or more and be in good health. There is no upper age limit and most medications and medical conditions do not prohibit someone from donating blood through the Red Cross.
