Save lives and look cool while you do

It’s time to get your swag on! We know you’re cool, as well as generous, altruistic, thoughtful, helpful … oh, we could go on. That’s why we’re offering our dedicated (and did we mention cool?) donors this exclusive Vitalant beanie for donating around the Labor Day holiday – and just in time for colder temps ahead. But that’s not all! We’re also thanking donors with a $10 Gift Card or another gift card of choice through our online donor store.

All donors who come to give blood, platelets or plasma Sept. 1-7, 2023, will receive a Vitalant beanie (while supplies last)* or 200 bonus points in the donor recognition program.** PLUS, donors will receive a $10 Gift Card or choice of gift card to other well-known retailers through our donor recognition store.^

Labor Day weekend reminds us that summer is nearing the end and it’s time to get back to our day-to-day routines, like blood donation. Help ensure patients get the transfusions they need by scheduling your next appointment.
