Several Great Falls businesses and organizations are hosting the fourth annual Give A Pint-Get A Pint Red Cross blood drive Friday.

The blood drive will be held at the Great Falls Chamber of Commerce at 100 1st Avenue North from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, May 3.

The drive is open to the public and walk-ins are welcome.

You can call 406-868-0911 or visit www.redcrossblood.org to schedule your appointment.

Donating blood takes less than hour, and all who donate will receive a pint of Meadow Gold ice cream, a coupon good for a pint of beer from Celtic Cowboy, and a $5 Amazon gift card while supplies last.

People who donate blood will also get the chance to win tickets to the Montana State Fair and Peak West Bank Landing day passes.

“This is a fun way to support Red Cross and help save lives,” said Diane Wright, executive director of American Red Cross of Montana. “We really appreciate the support of these partners as they spread the word about the importance of blood donations to their employees and the community and help us deliver blood to the patients who need it.”
