Vitalent teamed up with the Cajun Heartland State Fair today for a blood drive.
Donors who turned out got a sheet of tickets to the fair along with a commemorative cap and a restaurant gift certificate.
Corey frank with Vitalent says a shortage in blood happens during holidays such a Memorial Day.
“Normally around the holidays, starting with the Memorial Day Holiday we see a 20 percent decrease in blood donations.” Frank went on to say, “You know, we want to keep our shelves stocked, so this is an extra opportunity to get everybody to come in and donate.”
The Cajun Heartland State Fair opens tomorrow and runs through June 2nd at the Cajundome.
