As happens every summer, but is being made worse this year by the pandemic, the American Red Cross is in urgent need of donors.
As an incentive, those who give from July 7-31 will receive a $10 Amazon.com gift card by email and automatically will be entered for a chance to win gas for a year, up to $5,000. The nationwide contest will have three winners.
