When it comes to our state’s blood supply, the summer months are notoriously a tough time for maintaining a safe and adequate supply for patients in hospitals across the area and beyond. With the pandemic still upon us, the challenge is twofold as the Rhode Island Blood Center does their best to carry out their mission each day. However, you can help!

To ensure there is something for everyone, all presenting donors 16+ years of age will be automatically entered to win a $100 e-gift card when they donate in August.
