NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — The Nashville Predators are teaming up with the American Red Cross for blood drives across Tennessee this week.
The multi-city blood drive kicks off Monday, which is World Blood Donor Day, and continues through Friday, June 18.
All presenting donors who pre-schedule an appointment will receive a Predators foam hockey puck, while supplies last. All presenting donors will be automatically entered into a drawing to win an official American Red Cross logo puck signed by a current Nashville Predators player from each blood drive location.
