Memorial Blood Centers is Dunkin’ for Donors in January

December 21, 2018 (St. Paul, MN) - Memorial Blood Centers is Dunkin’ for Donors in January. The Minnesota-based blood center is partnering with 11 local Dunkin’ locations to help increase awareness about the need for blood donation during the winter, a traditionally challenging time to meet patient needs.

 

Dunkin’ will offer a coupon for a free medium hot or iced coffee to all presenting donors with Memorial Blood Centers.

 

“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to support our local blood center,” said Viral Kheni, Dunkin’ franchisee. “What better way to thank those who make a difference in our community than to offer them coffee to keep them running during National Blood Donor Month!”

 

Memorial Blood Centers relies on nearly 2,400 people each month to step up and donate in order to meet the demand of more than 30 local hospitals. “Memorial Blood Centers is thankful Dunkin’ is generously providing coffee coupons to encourage people to give,” said Kathy Geist, Memorial Blood Centers’ Senior Executive Director. “It only takes about an hour to donate. The need is constant, and the free coffee from Dunkin’ is a nice perk.”

 

One in three people will need blood in their lifetime. Only volunteers can help ensure blood is available. Donating blood is convenient and safe when you are healthy and:

o In good health o Free of antibiotics for 24 hours

o Symptom-free for at least 3 days following a cold or a flu

o 17 years or older-16 with written parental consent (form available at MBC.ORG )

 

To register for a blood drive, schedule online or call Memorial Blood Centers at 1-888-GIVE-BLD (1-888-448-3253). While walk-in donors are always welcome, we encourage appointments to be made in advance. Visit MBC.ORG/DUNKIN for more details.
