BONNERS FERRY— The  Vitalant blood drive visits Bonners Ferry every month and July is no exception. 

Anyone who donates between July 8 and 27 will be entered for a chance to win a car. 

This is not the first time that donors have been entered into a giveaway. In January and February, all donors were entered into a drawing for a chance to win one of 24 $500 gift cards.

Several blood drives are planned for July.  On Tuesday, July 9, a blood drive will be held in the gymnasium at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It will be held from 11 a.m. - 4:45 p.m. On Saturday, July 20, a drive will be held at Safeway in the Vitalant donation bus. The drive will be held from 10 a.m. - 1:15 p.m.
