BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) – Volunteer blood donors will receive a free movie ticket voucher and a fleece blanket when they donate blood from Tuesday, Dec. 28 through Friday, Dec. 31.

“The holiday season is a hard time for blood collections,” LifeShare Director of Marketing and Communications Kourtney M. Washington said in a press release. “LifeShare supplies over 100 hospitals and
medical partners with blood and plasma for the neediest among us.”

To give blood, LifeShare asks that donors be in good health and at least 110lbs. The youngest age donors can be is 17. Appointments can be scheduled here.

“Blood donations typically decrease around the holidays due to travel, inclement weather, and seasonal illnesses, which is why blood donations are needed now to avert the need to postpone potential lifesaving
treatment,” Washington said.
