red_cross_templateCHESTER – Two Chester-based businesses – Roto Frank of America and The Pattaconk 1850 Bar & Grille – are teaming up to host a blood drive on Wednesday, March 16 at Roto Frank of America on 14 Inspiration Lane in Chester.

Coordinated by Sue Lemire, HR/General Accounting Manager at Roto Frank of America, the blood drive, which will run from 9 a.m. to 1:45 p.m., is open to anyone who wishes to donate.

 This “Give a Pint, Get a Pint” promotion follows these guidelines:

 All presenting donors will be eligible for the promotion;

 Free pint offer is valid March 18, 2016—March 25, 2016;

 Limit one free pint per blood donor, not transferrable;

 Blood donors under the legal age of 21 are eligible for one free ice cream cone;

 Limited amount of donation appointments available, promotion is first come, first serve.

“This is a great way for our employees and members of the community to help the American Red Cross in a simple, yet effective way,” said Sue Lemire. “Blood donors with all types, particularly O-negative, A-negative and B-negative blood, are needed and we encourage everyone to make an appointment to donate blood.”

Blood donors are literally lifesavers as donated blood is critical to medical successes, especially emergencies. A single hour-long donation can potentially save three lives. To schedule an appointment for donation, call 1-800-RED CROSS (800-733-2767) or visit
