JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

The Blood Alliance is partnering with the Jacksonville Jaguars at their blood drives this weekend. Pre-season tickets to the Jaguars home games will be given away to donors who qualify. The first 30 donors who donate at Saturdays’s pre-season blood drive using the automated double-red blood cell collection system will receive one pair of Jaguars pre-season tickets and the first 12 who donate using the automated double-red blood cell collection system at the scrimmage game on August 3 will receive a pair of Jaguars pre-season tickets. All other registered donors will be eligible for a random drawing for additional pairs of tickets.

The blood drives on August 3 and August 4 will be held at EverBank Field at gate 1. The Blood Alliance is urging people to donate this weekend because their blood supply is critically low on all negative blood types (A-Negative, B-Negative, and the Universal Donor O-Negative).
