Subway to offer free six-inch subs for donating blood in August

By Staff | Jul 31, 2013

Lee Memorial Blood Centers has partnered with Subway for the month of August. Anyone who donates blood on one of our purple bloodmobiles or at one of our blood centers during the month will receive a coupon good for a free six-inch sub and also receive a t-shirt!

The local demand for blood remains constant and donations are needed to offset summer blood shortages. People can donate a pint of blood every 56 days. Donors are encouraged to eat a snack prior to giving blood and drink plenty of water.

All blood collected remains in the Lee Memorial Health System to serve your community. Lee Memorial Health System uses more than 800 units of blood each week. With both Golisano Children’s Hospital and the only trauma center within a five county area, the need for blood locally remains constant, and needs to be replenished daily. All blood types are currently needed.
