Donating blood has its perks this summer!

Donating blood is pretty easy to do, along with being very selfless. It takes about an hour and you could save up to 3 people's lives with your donation.

Now until August 28th, anyone who donates blood at the Rock River Valley Blood Center on Mondays will receive a coupon for a free slushie. The coupon will be good for one slushie at a local participating McDonald's.

The spokesperson for the RRVBC Jennifer Bowman told WIFR:

We are so excited to continue our partnership with the locally owned and operated McDonald’s. Mondays are a challenge no matter the time of year, but they are especially challenging during the summer months while people take extended weekends and vacations. This is a nice way for us to remind the community about the importance of a stable and adequate blood supply,”

Not only will get the hook up on cookies after you donate but now just in time for summer, free slushies!
