Give A Pint, Get A Pint
Stewart’s Shops is treating Red Cross blood donors to free pints of ice cream as a part of the “Give a Pint, Get a Pint” program. For the month of June, presenting donors at blood drives in 26 counties across Upstate New York will receive a voucher for a free pint of Stewart’s Shop’s ice cream or gelato. Vouchers can be redeemed at any Stewart’s Shops location.
The need for blood donations doesn’t take a vacation. Summer is a challenging time to collect enough blood to meet the needs of patients. Many regular donors are on vacations, off of work, or just out enjoying the beautiful weather. That’s why The American Red Cross and Stewart’s Shops are incentivizing donors with a sweet treat.
Every day the Red Cross must collect enough blood to meet the needs of accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those receiving treatment for leukemia, cancer, or sickle cell disease. Someone needs blood every two seconds. Each donation can help to save up to three lives. The need for blood is constant and is only available through the generosity of donors.
The Red Cross is looking for donations from people of all backgrounds to meet collection needs. The Red Cross needs to collect about 12,500 blood donations and more than 2,700 platelet donations to meet the needs of patients.
Last year the Give A Pint, Get A Pint was a sweet success.
