Give a Pint of Blood and get a Pint of Ice Cream
From Monday, June 4 through Saturday, June 9 blood donors at LifeShare Blood Centers Shreveport and Bossier City, La. centers will receive a free pint of Blue Bell Ice Cream.
Blue Bell Ice Cream has teamed up with LifeShare Blood Centers to kick off the summer months with a treat for local blood donors. Donors will receive a pint of Blue Bell ice cream in appreciation for their blood or blood component donation at the Shreveport Center, 8910 Linwood Dr. (at the LA3132 Linwood Exit) or the Bossier City Center, 1523 Doctors Drive.
"During the summer months blood donations typically drop due to the lack of high school drives and donors' travel schedules. We are grateful that Blue Bell has partnered with us offering blood donors another reason to come out and donate.
The pint of ice cream represents the pint that the donor gives, saving up to three lives with just the one donation," says Tina Martinez, Director of PR and Communications for LifeShare Blood Centers.
