The summer is upon us and the Rock River Valley Blood Center is celebrating by offering hot dogs and ice cold slushies to donors in Rockford and Belvidere.
Each Wednesday, blood donors will receive hot dogs and all of the toppings. Slushies will be available to donors every day. The blood center offers the deal in hopes of keeping donations high during the summer months, when donations can be low.
Jen Bowman with the RRVBC explained, "These are just little things we can do to say thank you and to encourage people to come in during the summer."
The center is currently in need of donors with negative blood types.
