On Monday, March 1 at 10:00 AM, Dunkin’ and the American Red Cross will kick off the partnership at the Nashville Red Cross Blood and Platelet Donation Center located at 2201 Charlotte Ave. Throughout March, presenting American Red Cross donors will receive a voucher for a free Classic Donut, redeemable at participating Dunkin’ restaurants in the Tennessee region, while supplies last.
As COVID-19 continues to affect everyday life, people may not be thinking about blood donation. However, blood and platelets are needed each day to help patients battling disease and facing the unexpected. Donating blood is an easy way to care for each other and ensure hospitals have the blood products patients rely on.
“During these challenging times, Dunkin’ and our local franchisees want to do all we can to support those who are giving back to our community,” said Katie Gaston, Field Marketing Manager, Dunkin’. “This program is a wonderful opportunity to encourage blood donations and ultimately help save lives. The need for blood remains constant and we’re excited that Dunkin’ can aid the American Red Cross’ collection efforts through this wonderful partnership.”
“We are very excited for this partnership with Dunkin’ of Tennessee,” said Garry Allison, Regional Donor Services Executive for the Red Cross, “Our community always steps up to respond when there are times of need. There is no greater need than now as we continue our fight against this pandemic. Your gift of blood can help a patient fighting COVID-19. It can help a child battling cancer. Simply put, your blood donation saves lives here in Tennessee and across this nation.”
