After canceling collections on Wednesday and Thursday due to blizzard conditions, Unyts is urging the community to donate blood this weekend. Demand at our local hospitals has increased and a strong turnout by donors is critical to ensure we have blood available for the WNY community.
Winter months are typically slower for blood donation because of inclement weather and seasonal illness. However, Unyts is responsible every day for providing our local hospitals with lifesaving blood products and for keeping the supply at a safe level. As local residents are able to return to their normal activities following the blizzard, Unyts encourages eligible donors to give blood.
On Saturday, February 2nd all Unyts Neighborhood Blood Donation Centers will be open from 7am-2pm, and there will be a pre-Super Bowl party for donors. All presenting donors will receive a coupon for a free single order of chicken wings from Just Pizza and Wing Co., all donors will be entered into a raffle for autographed Buffalo Bills merchandise, and there will be giveaways throughout the day from Sweet Works and Paula’s Donuts.
If you are unable to donate on Saturday, please visit a Neighborhood Blood Donation Center through February 9th to receive your Just Pizza coupon.
To make an appointment please visit www.unytsblooddonor.org today.
