Blood donors offered new opportunity to support students and teachers at ImpactLife
DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - ImpactLife is offering blood donors a new opportunity to support students and teachers, while donations are an urgent need.
Through Sept. 10, everyone who gives blood at ImpactLife donor centers or blood drives will receive a voucher to redeem for the donor’s choice of an electronic gift card or an equivalent value contribution to AdoptAClassroom.org, a national nonprofit that funds PreK-12 teachers and schools across the U.S. to help equip more classrooms and students for success and offset the financial burden on teachers.
The promotion comes while the region’s blood supply is in need, Public Relations Manager Kirby Winn said in a media release. O-positive and O-negative red blood cell inventories have ranged from just 1.5 days to a 3-days in recent weeks, while ImpactLife says they try to maintain a 5- to 7-day supply for all blood types and components to optimally meet patient needs across our region.
