 Get Festive. Give Blood.

It’s the time of year when the weather changes and there’s a chill in the air. People warm up with a cup of cocoa and spend time with family and friends. When the winter season rolls around, people do a lot to get into the spirit, but one of the surest ways to feel festive is to give back. Helping your community, lending a hand to your neighbors and sending joy to loved ones- can bring cheer to us all.

Donating blood is an easy way to give back and support your community and at a time when it’s most needed. The winter months are typically a season of great need for our hospitals and cold and flu season can impact the number of people eligible to donate. It’s important for all of our donors to know that an incredible difference can be made when you support life through blood donation. One of the best ways to get festive this year is by giving blood.




Because we’re feeling festive and we want to thank our donors for supporting the community by supporting life, from Nov. 15, 2013 until Jan. 2, 2014, participating donors will be entered into a drawing for a $500 gift card.*
