A blood drive in Muhlenberg County is giving donors the chance to win tickets to the 2022 Indy 500 while they help refuel the blood supply.

American Red Cross will hold a blood drive Thursday at the Greenville Second Baptist Church, which is located at 217 West Depot Street,  from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Red Cross will collect all blood types but has a big need for "type O" blood.

In addition to the need for blood, American Red Cross has teamed up with IndyCar between April 1st through 15th.  Every donation made, including at Thursday's event, will lead to an entry to win a VIP trip for four to the 2022 Indianapolis 500.  Donors will also have a chance to win one of five $1,000 e-gift cards to a merchant of their choice.

If residents aren't able to make it to Thursday's blood drive, they can find more blood drives to take part in at RedCrossBlood.Org.

Autumn officially begins at 2:21 PM today! The fall-like air will be firmly in place thanks to the strong northwest wind flow. Winds will gust as high as 30 MPH. On and off rain chances will continue through the early-afternoon before clearing around 5PM. Highs will struggle to make it out of the low-60s.
