Donors will have the opportunity to not only give the gift of life at a blood drive Aug. 14 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Chevrolet of Goldsboro, but they will also be able to direct a $5 donation to the charity of their choice. The dealership will donate $5 to a nonprofit organization for each donor.

"This is huge as Chevrolet of Goldsboro sponsors the largest one-day blood drive in Wayne County, collecting more than 150 units," said Kimberly Berrier, senior donor recruitment representative. "They already give blood donors a goodie bag with coupons from Chick-Fil-A, Krispy Kreme, Adam's Auto Wash and Texas Steakhouse. But for this blood drive, they've also decided to make a $5 donation to a nonprofit."

For more information about the blood drive at Chevrolet of Goldsboro, call the Red Cross office at 735-7201.
