Red Cross and Peanuts: Be kind, give blood in April

Press Staff Writer

        During National Volunteer Month in April, the American Red Cross is joining forces with Peanuts® as a reminder that “it’s cool to be kind.”
        The Red Cross relies on the kindness of volunteer donors every day to ensure blood is available when patients need it.
        As a thank-you, donors who come to give through April 23 will receive an exclusive Red Cross and Peanuts T-shirt featuring Snoopy as the coolest beagle in town, Joe Cool, while supplies last. Also through April, those who donate will be automatically entered for a chance to win a three-night trip for two to Sonoma County, California. This getaway includes flights, hotel, a $1,000 gift card and special tours of the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Snoopy’s Home Ice, courtesy of Peanuts Worldwide.​​​​​ Details are available at
