Gardner-White and the American Red Cross are teaming up to host blood drives in Metro Detroit.

The blood drives will be Aug. 19 and 20.

Donors will receive a coupon for $50 off a Gardner-White purchase of at least $399 and be entered to win a $500 Gardner-White gift certificate. Drawings will be held for each of the locations.

Red Cross is experiencing a critical need for blood as the demand has increased, officials said. The Red Cross has sent 12% more blood products to hospitals to help patients in recent months, according to a press release.
