Give a Pint, Get a Pint benefits blood bank

      EUGENE, Ore. - Give a pint of blood, get a pint of beer.

      That's the idea behind the Third Annual Give a Pint, Get a Pint, which runs through Jan. 14.

      "5,400 hundred people have participated the last two years," said Marshall White with the Lane Blood Center. "That translates into 4,400 successful units of blood."

      All registering blood donors will receive a a free souvenir pint glass and a voucher to Hop Valley Brewing Company. Vouchers are redeemable at any Hop Valley Brewing Company location for either a pint of beer or a non-alcoholic beverage.

      You must be 21 or older to receive beer, and you must wait until AFTER you donate blood to drink the beer.
