In an effort to draw in much-needed blood donations, the American Red Cross of Minnesota is offering some pretty sweet freebies to donors! Dennis Stolpner shares the details:
Are you located in or around the Minneapolis area? If so, the American Red Cross urges you to attend ARC Minnesota’s on-going blood drive! In particular, the initiative is calling for blood donations from individuals with type O, or those able to donate platelets. However, donations of all blood types are always needed as well.
But you’ve got to act fast: these freebies will only be available for this month’s blood drive, which will be held all month long, July 2021.
Individuals who donate at the Minneapolis blood drive between July 1st — 6th will be gifted a Red Cross embroidered hat. If you can’t make it during the first week — no worries! Donors who participate in the blood drive July 7th — 31st will receive a $10 Amazon gift card and be entered in a raffle for a chance to win free gas for one year!
While these freebies are fantastic, it’s important to remember that it is always worth participating in an American Red Cross blood drive — either as a volunteer or as a blood donor. Simply knowing that your donation could save a life or help a sick or injured person regain their health is an incredible gift in and of itself.
