4th annual Fire Cracker 100 blood drive gets new location in Uptown

The 4th annual Firecracker 100 blood drive will get a new location this year in Uptown Columbus. The drive aims to collect 100 pints of blood between two events but Uptown hopes they can get it all in one day.

Becca Zajac with Uptown Columbus joins the News 3 Midday Community Watch and says she hopes the increased foot traffic and support for community events will finally get the blood drive its 100 pints.
