Giving back, that is the true meaning of the holiday season. Here's how you can give back, and maybe even save a life this holiday season.

Arts Quincy, GREDF, and the Chamber of Commerce are teaming up for a blood drive on December 11 from 1 pm - 6 pm. Located at the Oakley-Lindsey Center, the blood drive is a great way to help another this holiday.

When you donate you will receive a $5 Amazon gift certificate, and everyone who comes in to donate will be entered to win several prizes. How about two tickets to the SOLD OUT QCT show ELF the Musical, two tickets to the Quincy Symphony Orchestra, two tickets to Quincy Civic Music presents the Russian National Ballet, and five family memberships to Arts Quincy

There will be other door prizes to win from local businesses, and snacks will be available. Nothing says happy holidays then donating blood and saving a life. To make an appointment you can download the American Red Cross app or visit
