Everyone who registers to donate on Dec. 1 at the Dayton center will receive a free Kings Island WinterFest e-ticket while supplies last or a Kroger $10 gift card, according to a media release.

People can also register to donate at any Solvita blood drive to receive the “Sleigh-In-It” long-sleeve, holiday season t-shirt and to be automatically entered in the drawing to win two tickets to the New Year’s Day Rose Bowl game in Pasadena, California, plus a $1,000 Expedia gift card for travel expenses.

Donors can also make an appointment online here.
