Hot Dog Wednesdays and Ice Cold Slushies Return to Rock River Valley Blood Center for the Summer
Date:5/19/2013

Rockford, IL (PRWEB) May 19, 2013

Beginning Wednesday, May 29 and running through Wednesday, August 28, the Rock River Valley Blood Center (RRVBC) will feature “Hot Dog Wednesdays" and Ice Cold Slushies at donor centers in Rockford and Belvidere. RRVBC will provide hot dogs and all the fixin's to donors on Wednesdays. RRVBC will also feature ice-cold slushies each day throughout the summer. “Donors are our lifeline. The summer months are an especially challenging time to maintain a stable and adequate blood supply. This is a small way for us to thank our donors and hopefully encourage more people to donate. We encourage people to consider donating during their lunch hour on Wednesdays and we’ll provide the lunch,” said Jennifer Bowman, RRVBC.

Donating blood is safe and simple. You are most likely able to donate if you are at least 17 years old (16 year olds may donate with parental consent), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in general good health. Persons taking medications are not necessarily disqualified.

The Rock River Valley Blood Center serves as a centralized, community blood center and is the sole provider of blood products and services to Beloit Memorial Hospital, Edgerton Hospital and Health Services, Freeport Health Network, Mercy Harvard Hospital, OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center, Rochelle Community Hospital, Rockford Health System, SwedishAmerican Health System and SwedishAmerican Medical Center—Belvidere. For more information or to make an appointment to donate blood, please call toll free 877-RRVBC-99 or find RRVBC on the web at http://www.rrvbc.org.
