LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The American Red Cross is offering a free Broaster Chicken dinner and a ticket to King's Island for anyone who gives blood.

The Holiday Hero blood drive goes until 7 p.m. Wednesday at Millionaire's Row at Churchill Downs, and again on Thursday from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.

There's an urgent need for donors. The American Red Cross faces an emergency blood shortage.

"Someone needs blood every two seconds, and each donation saves three lives," said Cara Lawson, of the American Red Cross. "What better way to feel good about doing good for up to three other people, and being a hero?" 

If you can't make it to this blood drive, more are planned throughout the month. Here's a list:
