Give Blood and Ride into the New Year

December 01, 2016

(St. Paul, MN) – You have a chance to ride into the New Year on a brand new ATV! Memorial Blood Centers is partnering with Polaris Industries to offer all presenting blood donors during the month of December a chance to win a Polaris ATV.

Maintaining a stable blood supply around the holidays is challenging as many people head out of town to enjoy time with family, but the need for blood is constant. Every two seconds someone needs blood and patients in local hospitals depend on Memorial Blood Centers to be there with the blood they need to survive. Only volunteer donors can help ensure blood is available.

Plus, those who present to donate from Tuesday, December 20, 2016 through Tuesday, January 3, 2017 will also receive a free long-sleeve shirt as an extra thank you.

Only volunteer blood donors can help save lives. To schedule your life-saving donation today visit MBC.ORG, call 1-888-GIVE-BLD (1-888-448-3253), or contact one of the following blood drive sponsors. All blood types are needed—especially O negative (O-) and O positive (O+).
