Without blood donors, many patients simply would not be alive today. Some donors have made it their mission to help save lives repeatedly. Year after year, we have donors committed to doing their part to help patients in need, with an amazing dedication that never waivers.
As a special thank you to our dedicated donors reaching milestones on Friday, November 27, 2015, we will be hosting a special event in their honor. Join us at either donor center for our Thanks a Gallon social event. Donors will enjoy free delicious tacos from 11- 2 pm from Taco Fusion and a coupon for a buy one of their well known Fatboy Fries and get one half off! Taco Fusion is honored to have an opportunity to help thank our lifesaving donors. Taco Fusion owner, Jeanny Kamphan is enthusiastic about our partnership, “we believe what makes a living is what we get, however we make life by what we give. Setting your heart to do good will be filled with joy,” expressed Jeanny. Plus, Curbside Kitchen is joining the fun by providing a voucher for free garlic fries! Also, take selfies in front of our fun photo booth from Ballooniverse by Jennifer . We will also have other goodies and fun as we celebrate that next gallon milestone!
“Thanksgiving is a time for thanks, so what better way to show how much we appreciate the giving spirit of our dedicated donors than by celebrating their milestones,” said Joy Invina, Community Development Account Manager. Each gallon milestone takes 8 pints, which takes at least 16 months. A small percentage of the population gives blood at all, and fewer still reach incredible milestones, so each gallon really is a great achievement worth shouting about!
If you are not sure where you stand on your next gallon achievement, call Peggy at 616-2540 for more information. If you know you have a milestone coming up make an appointment to give during the Thanks a Gallon social event by calling Peggy or filling in a request here. We look forward to recognizing your efforts during this special day.
