Monday, August 21st—Saturday, August 26th blood donors will receive a coupon for a free medium one topping pizza or order of cheesesticks from participating Papa John’s when they donate at a donor center or blood drive!! Donors will also receive an NFL magnet with Bears and Packers game day schedules. “As we approach the last three day weekend of the summer, we need to make sure there is enough blood on the shelves. Donors are traveling, getting their kids back to school and enjoying the end of summer, so donations are down,” said Jennifer Bowman, RRVBC, “we’re hoping this might entice someone to take the time to give blood. It’s also a way to say thank you!”
