Duluth—Maintaining a stable blood supply around the holidays is challenging as many people head out of town to enjoy time with family, but the need for blood is constant. Every two seconds someone needs blood. Patients in local hospitals depend on Memorial Blood Centers to be there with the blood they need to survive. Only volunteer donors can help ensure blood is available.
Memorial Blood Centers is partnering with Polaris Industries to offer all presenting blood donors during the month of December a chance to win a Polaris ATV. Participants who donate from Tuesday, Dec. 20 through Tuesday, Jan. 3 will also receive a free long-sleeve shirt as an extra thank you. Visit mbc.org for more info.
