This summer, we want you to GET OUTTA TOWN… but only for a weekend!

From July 1 through August 31st, all participating donors will be entered into a weekly random donor drawing for a chance to win one of several get-a-ways from one of our community sponsors (list below). In addition, participating donors will receive a limited edition “Destination Donation” tee shirt, while supplies last. Drawings will take place every Friday starting July 6th. Winners will be able to choose destination based on remaining availability, so donate soon and donate often for more opportunity to win!

Here is some helpful information to know when you become a blood donor with VBS:

  • You’ll receive an email when your blood has shipped out to a hospital in need, so you know when your generous donation is impacting someone’s life.
  • You can sign up for our rewards program so that with every donation, you’ll earn points to redeem for some unique VBS items. Sign up here.
  • Are you all about social media? So are we. Follow us on FacebookTwitterInstagramLinkedIn and Youtube to stay up to date!
  • Staying hydrated and eating iron-rich foods before your appointment can help ensure an even better donation experience. Learn more about eligibility and how to prepare for your next donation.
