Noodling Over Saving Lives?

June 22, 2017

(St. Paul, MN) – When tragedy strikes, it’s the blood already on the shelves that saves lives in our local hospitals. Memorial Blood Centers (MBC) is encouraging members of our local communities to help keep those shelves stocked by becoming regular blood donors, and is offering great incentives to get them started.

All month long, MBC is partnering with Noodles to give donors a $5 off coupon for an online order of $10 or more. To learn more, visit MBC.ORG/Noodles. Additionally, all presenting blood donors from June 26–July 8 will receive a free Fishing for Donors t-shirt (while supplies last).

Volunteer donors are needed to step up and give blood during the summer months, when blood donations are often low. It's important that donors keep their blood donation appointments, as these appointments help MBC plan a stable supply of blood for local hospitals. Patients depend on MBC to be there with the right blood type they need to survive.

To register for a blood drive, visit us online at MBC.ORG, or contact the sponsoring organization directly. While walk-in donors are always welcome, we encourage appointments to be made in advance. All types are needed—especially O negative (O-) and O positive (O+).
