Help Build the Blood Supply: Give blood with the Red Cross and Cedar Fair Theme Parks

Title: American Red Cross and Cedar Fair Theme Parks Collaborate for Blood Donations during Summer 2024

The American Red Cross has issued a press release on July 2, 2024, urging blood donors to contribute during the upcoming Fourth of July holiday and the following weeks. The organization has experienced a significant decrease in donations since late spring, leading to a critical need for all blood types, particularly type O donors.

In an effort to boost community participation, the American Red Cross and Cedar Fair theme parks have partnered for the summer. By donating blood at select blood drives, donors will receive a free ticket valid for entry to participating U.S. Cedar Fair parks, while supplies last. It is essential to note that certain restrictions may apply, and individuals should check the respective park websites for information on capacity, open dates, and hours.

The following is a list of upcoming Cedar Fair Blood Drives, where donors can receive a free theme park ticket:

  1. Wednesday, July 3, from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at South Side Christian Church, Lima, OH (Sponsor Code: southsidecc)
  2. Friday, July 5, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Williams County Family YMCA, Bryan, OH (Sponsor Code: bryanhs)
