Today, as summer temperatures soar and the community gears up for the Independence Day holiday, DCH is offering a pint of ice cream to anyone who donates or attempts to donate blood today at their Regional Medical Center in Tuscaloosa.

DCH and LifeSouth will set up in Willard Auditorium at DCH Regional Medical Center until 4 p.m. to collect blood and help meet the season's demand.

Participants will receive a coupon redeemable for a pint of ice cream at the Patio Grille and Café inside the hospital.
