The Rock River Valley Blood Center wants you to go for the gold by donating red.
During the Olympics, anyone who stops by to donate blood gets a free special edition T-shirt. Another cool perk for donors? Free Cherry Berry Chillers from McDonalds. The Center hopes this will help bring more folks in because summer is a difficult time for donations. Not only are there more accidents during this season, but people are also less likely to give blood.
RRVBC Director of Operations Heidi Ognibene says more than every, every donation counts. "You don't need to know your blood type, we don't pre-requisite that. Your blood is important to us no matter what type it is."
You can call (877) RRV-BC99 to make an appointment today.
