There's an added incentive to give blood next month as two Severna Park businesses have teamed up to sponsor a Red Cross Blood Drive from 2 to 8 p.m. on Aug. 6.
According to the Red Cross, there is an emergency need for all blood types.
The first 25 donors will get a free kid's size Italian ice in any flavor, Rob said.
"They [the Red Cross] are in desperate need of blood and we are trying to help," he said.
To learn more about donating blood, call 1-800-RED-CROSS.
