Let’s Get Straight to the Pint This August
Mark your calendars and get ready for a delightful scoop of news! Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center is thrilled to announce the continuation of its longstanding partnership with Blue Bell Creameries as they celebrate an impressive three decades of collaboration this August during our highly anticipated annual Pint for Pint promotion.
Since 1990, Blue Bell Creameries has been committed to saving lives alongside Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center, generously providing vouchers for complimentary pints of their ice cream as a token of gratitude to our blood donors. These promotional incentives serve as extra encouragement, inspiring the community to roll up their sleeves and make life-saving blood donations.
“After more than three decades of continued partnership, Blue Bell is proud to work closely with the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center each year,” said Lauren Lewis, Public Relations Specialist with Blue Bell Creameries. “Our employees and their families play and live in these communities, so it is important that we support organizations and business that give back. We are thankful to team up with our friends at Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center – and to champion their mission in saving lives” said Lewis.
Every day, our community relies on a steady supply of blood and blood products for our hospitals and the patients they care for. By collaborating with Blue Bell, we aim to ensure that our community maintains an adequate blood supply. The summer season typically sees a decline in donors due to school breaks, travel plans, and missed appointments. But the need remains constant. Our hospitals rely on our community to supply blood products for patients’ life-saving treatments.
During the Pint for Pint promotion, donors who successfully donate blood between August 1st and August 31st will receive a voucher from Blue Bell Creameries, good for one free pint of Blue Bell ice cream from their local grocery store. Blue Bell Creameries, an esteemed American food company known for its premium ice cream, sherbet, and a wide range of frozen treats, holds a prominent position as one of the best-selling ice cream brands nationwide. With production facilities in Texas, Oklahoma, and Alabama, Blue Bell Creameries employs approximately 3,000 dedicated individuals across its three production facilities, 65 distribution facilities, and 23 transfer stations spanning 23 states. For further information about Blue Bell Creameries, please visit their website at bluebell.com.
Donating blood is easy and can be done once every 56 days. A typical whole blood donation takes about an hour and saves many lives. Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center is asking our community to donate more frequently and make giving blood a part of their routine as a way of giving back – One-hour changes everything!
To find a location for donation, please visit giveblood.org. And let’s work together to keep our blood supply strong this August. Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center is the sole provider of blood and blood components 24/7 to more than 170 hospitals and health care facilities in a 26-county Texas Gulf Coast region. Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center is a nonprofit organization and is accredited by the Food and Drug Administration. For more information or to help save lives, visit giveblood.org.
