All presenting donors at Nebraska Community Blood Bank from August 1-31 will be automatically entered for a chance to win dinner and theater tickets. Though the demand for blood is constant, the supply is not – and summer is an especially difficult time to maintain a steady blood supply, with schools on break, families on vacation, and donors missing their regular appointments. New and repeat donors are urgently needed to make a donation and help save a life. And, nearly 100% of the blood used by patients in Nebraska hospitals is donated by Nebraska blood donors with Nebraska Community Blood Bank.
Donors during August will be automatically entered for a chance to win a $150 gift certificate to a Nebraska theater venue of their choosing, as well as a $50 VISA gift card for dinner. For more information, visit NCBB.ORG/BRAVO.
Additionally, you can support Lincoln Police Department (LPD) and Lincoln Fire & Rescue (LFR) this August by donating blood at a Battle of the Badges blood drive. The Battle of the Badges competition aims to raise awareness of the importance of blood donation through a friendly life-saving competition between teams of first responders. To show support for your local heroes and help them win the competition, simply donate blood at your participating police or fire department’s blood drive. Learn more at NCBB.ORG/BADGES.
While walk-in donors are always welcome, we encourage donors to make appointments in advance. Visit NCBB.ORG or call 1-877-486-9414 to make an appointment today at your local donor center or any of the upcoming blood drives.
