Labor Day: Increased Need & Plenty of Promotions!
With Labor Day right around the corner, we wanted to remind you that our Erie Donor Center is closed for the holiday and there will be no drives that day.
That means that the days leading up to and following the holiday are critically important to the blood supply. As you know by now, we are still at an increased need for all blood types, especially negative blood types. We’ll need all eligible donors to donate, so please help spread the word to friends & family who may be ready to donate as well!
Now ready for the fun news? September will be kicking off with 3 (yes, three!) different promotions for you to take advantage of!
The first will be the last weeks of the 1,000 Point Promotion, which began on May 17 and ends on September 17. If you haven’t already received your bonus points, don’t miss your chance! As a reminder, you will be automatically awarded your 1,000 points after your last qualifying donation during the promotion timeframe. Qualifying donations are: 1 Double-Red donation, 2 Whole Blood donations, or 4 Platelet donations.
The second promotion will run on Friday, Sept. 2 & Saturday, Sept. 3. All those who donate during those days will receive an American Flag pin, while supplies last.
And last but not least, from Sept. 1 through Sept. 13 donors will receive a commemorative t-shirt (see the image to the right for a preview of the design) when they donate. Shirts are while supplies last, be sure to get yours before they’re gone!
