PHILADELPHIA - January is National Blood Donor Month, a time to recognize the importance of giving blood and platelets while honoring those who roll up a sleeve to help patients in need.
Dunkin’ and American Red Cross Team up to Celebrate National Blood Donor Month
To celebrate, Dunkin’ of Greater Philadelphia is teaming up with the American Red Cross to provide 30,000 vouchers for Red Cross blood and platelet donors in Southeastern Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey, and Northern Delaware.
Throughout January, presenting donors will receive a voucher for a free Medium Hot Coffee and a free Classic Donut, redeemable at participating Dunkin’ restaurants in the Greater Philadelphia area, while supplies last. The vouchers are not redeemable for cash.*
As COVID-19 continues to affect everyday life, people may not be thinking about blood donation. However, blood and platelets are needed each day to help patients battling the disease and facing the unexpected. Donating blood is an easy way to care for each other and ensure hospitals have the blood products patients rely on.
“As the pandemic wears on into the New Year, blood donations remain essential to the health of our communities,” said Helen Munizza, Regional Donor Services Executive for the American Red Cross in Southeastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey. “Our collaboration with Dunkin’ of Greater Philadelphia allows us to thank our donors with a special gift this January and helps ensure blood products are available for patients.”
