BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — A local blood donation center is offering ham or turkey vouchers for residents who donate blood.
According to a release from the LifeShare Blood Center, all visitors who donate blood between Saturday, Nov. 18, and Wednesday, Nov. 22, will receive a free LifeShare shirt and a $15 voucher toward buying a turkey or ham for the Thanksgiving holiday.
“Holidays are a hard time for blood collections as our normal collection points, such as schools and businesses, close for the holidays. LifeShare supplies over 100 hospitals and medical partners with blood and blood products throughout the region. Since Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on what we are most grateful for, LifeShare is giving thanks to our donors for giving blood and sharing life,” says Mandi Johnson, Director of Community Engagement.
These vouchers will be available at all LifeShare locations and mobile units. Click here to schedule a donation appointment. Walk-ins are also accepted.
