The Green Bay Packers are teaming up with the Lakeland Chapter of the American Red Cross for a blood drive from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday in the Lambeau Field parking lot, 1265 Lombardi Ave.

 “We encourage fans who have time before or after practice to stop by and donate, and make it part of a fun and rewarding day at training camp,” said Mark Murphy, Packers president and CEO.

All donors will receive a special Red Cross “I Bleed Green & Gold” T-shirt while supplies last at the Tundra Tailgate Zone on the east side of the lot near the Oneida Nation gate. Donors also will be entered for a chance to win a $500 gas gift card.

All blood types are needed, especially O negative, B negative and A negative.
