Beginning Monday, June 4 and running through August 28, 2018, blood donors will receive a coupon for a Free Slushie from participating McDonald’s when donating blood on a Monday!!  Once again, area McDonald’s have partnered with Rock River Valley Blood Center to offer a token of gratitude to summertime blood donors. “We’re very happy to continue to be a part of the great work RRVBC does in the community,” remarked Guy Bucciferro, McDonald’s Owner/Operator.

“We are so excited to continue our partnership with the locally owned and operated McDonald’s. Mondays are a challenge no matter the time of year, but they are especially challenging during the summer months while people take extended weekends and vacations. This is a nice way for us to remind the community about the importance of a stable and adequate blood supply,” said Jennifer Bowman spokesperson for RRVBC.
