During the 100 Days of Summer, every day, every donor, every patient counts. Will you give?
We know every donation makes a difference for patients who require a potentially lifesaving blood transfusion. During the summer months, when the rate of blood donation drops, each and every donation matters even more.The challenge is greatest during the days surrounding summer holidays (Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day), but the impact is felt all summer long as the Blood Center is unable to hold blood drives with most school-based sponsor groups from mid-May to mid-September. Remaining sponsor groups, and the Blood Center’s own Donor Centers, often see a decrease in sign-ups and lower show rates for appointments during the summer months as well.
To thank everyone who comes to give blood during this critical time of year, the Blood Center is offering some great donor promotions!
We have identified these specific days when the blood supply needs on our community tend to be especially critical. Donors who make appointments on these days will earn Double IMPACT Points for each of these donations. The table below lists the standard points, so on double points days, all would be increased x2.
June 4 - September 16 (all donor centers)All presenting donors at donor centers will receive a voucher to redeem a $5 gift card to Amazon or Subway.
August 20-September 9 (all mobile blood drives)All presenting donors at mobile blood drives will receive a voucher to redeem a limited-edition Team Spirit T-shirt. Options/sizes may be limited
