Hoxworth Blood, Honor Flight Tri-State team up to honor local heroes
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Hoxworth Blood Center, the University of Cincinnati and Honor Flight Tri-State will honor local heroes during the 10th Annual Hero2Hero Blood Drive.
The drive runs from Thursday, Nov. 8 through Saturday, Nov. 10.
For the third year in a row, Hoxworth is sponsoring a group of veterans to fly with Honor Flight Tri-State, an organization that transports veterans to Washington, DC to visit their war memorials.
Hoxworth is asking eligible blood donors to support the cause by donating blood at a Hoxworth neighborhood donor center during the drive and write a thank you note to a local veteran. All thank you notes will be presented to Honor Flight Tri-State veterans who make the trip to Washington, D.C. in 2019.
Appointments for blood donors are encouraged but walk-ins are welcome. Donors can schedule appointments by calling (513) 451-0910 or by scheduling online by clicking here.
