Partnership Provides Blood Donors with Pies Ahead of Holidays

December 22, 2017

This season of giving, blood donors who give ahead of the holidays will receive an extra-sweet thank you.

Memorial Blood Centers (MBC) has partnered with Perkins Restaurants & Bakeries to provide holiday pies to blood donors who present to donate blood at select donor centers on December 24, Christmas Eve Day, and December 31, New Year’s Eve Day. The first-of-its-kind promotion aims to encourage donors to give blood on Sundays—a day when MBC donor centers are normally closed.

“The need for blood does not take a holiday,” said MBC Corporate and Community Relations Officer Larry Silber. “So we’re grateful these holiday pies from Perkins will help us show our appreciation to donors while ensuring local hospitals have a reliable supply of blood.”

Donors can give blood at the following locations in order to receive a pie, while supplies last:
