A Colorful Way to Save Lives

September 29, 2017

Crayola Experience(St. Paul, MN) – When you present to donate blood with Memorial Blood Centers in October, you’ll receive a pair of tickets to Crayola Experience at Mall of America! The family-friendly attraction offers 25 hands-on experiences, including a chance to name your own crayon and melt and mold crayons into art. Visit MBC.ORG/CRAYOLA for details.

In addition, all presenting donors in the Northland will be entered in a drawing to win a pair of tickets to a UMD men's hockey game. Learn more at MBC.ORG/UMD.

All blood types are needed to save lives—and regular blood donors are crucial for helping to maintain a safe and stable supply of blood. The blood on the shelves today will help hospital patients during tragedy or a time of need tomorrow.

To find a blood drive or donor center nearest you, visit us online, or see upcoming blood drives in your area listed below. To register, go to MBC.ORG, or contact the sponsoring organization directly. While walk-in donors are always welcome, we encourage appointments to be made in advance. It’s important for donors to keep their blood donation appointments, as these appointments help MBC plan a stable supply of blood for local hospitals.
