Red Cross, Elvis encourage blood donations

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The American Red Cross in Nashville is getting help from Elvis Presley Enterprises of Memphis to encourage blood donations.

All blood donors in Nashville on selected dates through Feb. 28 will receive an Elvis-themed rock 'n' roll T-shirt.

They also will become eligible to win trips to Las Vegas and Graceland in Memphis.

According to a news release from the Red Cross, blood collections tend to decline in January and February because of winter weather.
