Winter may bring us frosty mornings and snow-covered landscapes, but it also brings a unique opportunity to make a real impact in our community. As the temperature drops and we find ourselves bundled up against the chill, it's important to remember that there's "snow" one like blood donors!
When the weather takes a wintry turn, accidents and emergencies can happen at any moment. The demand for blood rises, but the willingness to venture out into the cold often wanes. That's where our amazing blood donors come in, like a brigade of friendly snowmen offering their helping hands (or branches)! By donating blood during the winter months, you can be a true snowman's best friend, ensuring that hospitals have the life-saving resources they need. So, embrace the cozy warmth of giving, and remember, there is "snow" one like blood donors who can shine a beacon of hope amidst the winter's chill.
Join us to save local lives, marvel at holiday decor, and receive your voucher for our FREE 2023 Holiday long sleeve shirt when you donate at the Blank Children's Hospital Festival of Trees and Lights held at the Veteran's Memorial Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center.
