NORFOLK-- In an effort to boost a period of declining blood donations, Farm Fresh Supermarkets and 13NEWS are partnering with the American Red Cross to provide an exciting opportunity for one lucky donor.

Donors at select Red Cross blood drives will automatically be entered to win a 3-minute Farm Fresh supermarket shopping spree and receive a coupon for 20% off at the Farm Fresh salad bar.

With more people traveling and taking vacations and approximately 19% of the Mid-Atlantic Region donor base being made up of high school and college students, summer is a difficult time of year for blood collection.

13NEWS anchor Vanessa Coria will also participate in a shopping spree which will benefit the local Foodbank.
