Blood donor to drive away a superhero with Volkswagen

To inspire blood donations, Vitalant will award a 2019 VW Passat Wolfsburg Edition.

Blood donors are asked to bring their “lifesaving powers” to Vitalant centers or drives to be automatically entered to win a 2019 VW Passat Wolfsburg Edition.

The seven Valley Volkswagen dealers have donated the car and partnered with Vitalant in the 10th annual campaign to help inspire more people to give blood this summer.

Ten finalists will be drawn to participate in the grand prize ceremony. They will be unveiled throughout the summer on AZ-TV. For a blood donation appointment, call 1-877-UBS-HERO (827-4376) or visit bloodhero.com (enter your city or ZIP code).

All blood types are needed, but Type O is always in greatest demand.
