The American Red Cross is offering an incentive to New York residents who donate blood and platelets during the month of January.
Anyone who donates from Jan. 1 to Jan. 31 will receive a $5 Dunkin’ Donuts gift card via email.
“January is a time we tend to see a dip in the blood supply,” said Jennifer Sinclair, director of donor recruitment, Red Cross Biomedical Services. “Donors may not have had time to come in during the holidays, and the threat of severe weather is always looming here in the northeast. This incentive is one way to remind donors the need for blood doesn’t take a winter break.”
In order to receive the gift card, all donors must have a valid email on file with the Red Cross at the time of donation.
