OneBlood donors to receive zoo admission


Individuals who give blood in the Jacksonville metro area on the Big Red Bus during the month of August will receive a special buy-one-get-one-free admission offer from the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens. Donors will also be treated to a soft-sided OneBlood cooler and a wellness checkup that includes blood pressure, pulse, temperature, iron count and cholesterol screening.

Generally healthy people 16 or older who weigh at least 110 pounds can donate blood.
