Are you eligible but don’t have the motivation? In addition to the Oreos and apple juice after the donation, Hoxworth has added another incentive to donating blood and blood products. They have started the Premier Donor Club. For qualifying donations, you collect points which can be used to purchase gift cards to local vendors (ie; Gold Star Chili, LaRosa’s, Montgomery Inn, AMC Theaters, etc.). Each blood donation is worth a set amount of points. For example, one whole blood donation is 500 points. After my second donation, I will have 1000 points and can redeem them for a $10 gift card of my choice. Pretty cool, right? You can learn more and sign up for the Premier Donor Club at hoxworth.org/plus.
Not eligible or not interested in donating? Blood donation isn’t for everyone and that’s okay.
