They say it is the season of giving, so why are they always in short supply this time of year? We are talking about blood banks all around the nation, including right here.
Right now, the South Bend Medical Foundation needs O- and A- but in general they need all blood types. They say the week before Christmas and the week leading up to New Year's is really difficult for them.
So, in order to get folks through the door they have a few incentives for you. From now until Christmas Eve everyone who donates is entered to win a $500 gift certificate. Plus, if you donate between December 28 and December 31 everyone gets a $15 dollar Bruno’s Pizza gift certificate.
The South Bend Medical Foundation is closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. They are open until noon on Christmas Eve.
