COLLIER COUNTY: While everyone is preparing for Hurricane Ike in their own ways, local hospitals are getting ready by bulking up on blood.

Anticipating a shortage in donors next week and possibly a surge in demand - Naples Community Hospital is hosting blood drives all weekend.

They even gave back themselves, rewarding donors with free movie tickets at Coconut Point yesterday.

"Whenever there's a big event like a hurricane or other disaster, they are going to need it," said donor Shawna Laufer.

The blood drives continue this weekend. On Saturday, you can get free movie tickets by donating at the Hollywood 20 theater in Naples from noon to 6 p.m.

Or, on Monday, you can donate from noon to 5:30 p.m. at the Naples Community Hospital Support Services Building.
