Donate Blood at MBC During June for a Chance to Win Minnesota Twins Tickets
Memorial Blood Centers (MBC) is facing a shortage of blood and platelet donations. More than 50% of the blood supply was lost when community blood drives were cancelled due to COVID-19 this year, and the supply remains low (less than a 3-day supply of all blood types). Blood drives are resuming, with additional precautions at all donation sites. To replenish supplies for Twin Cities hospitals, trauma centers, and air ambulance bases, more healthy donors are needed in the coming weeks.
As a thank you, all presenting donors through June 30 will be entered in for a chance to win weekly drawings for Minnesota Twins Tickets. Appointments are preferred to help maintain social distancing, and donors are required to wear a face mask or face covering. Appointments can be made online at MBC.ORG or by calling 1-888-GIVE-BLD (888-448-3253).
