The Community Blood Bank is hoping you'll wear the green and give the red, just ahead of Saint Patrick's Day. The Blood Bank is facing a blood shortage due to the harsh winter we've been enduring. It's always a good time to give blood, but the blood bank is offering a festive deal Thursday. The first 75 people to give blood will get a pot o' shamrocks from Joel’s Flower Shop just for donating. The Community Blood Bank at 26th and Peach Streets is open from 8 a.m. to 5p.m. Thursday.
