Mates Make a Difference Blood Drive

LifeShare Blood Centers and Outback Steakhouse® are inviting the community to donate blood at a Mates Make a Difference Blood Drive this Saturday, August 9, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The blood drive will take place on a LifeShare mobile unit at participating Outback Steakhouse restaurants.

All blood donors will receive a $5 off certificate to Outback Steakhouse. Blood donors who give twice between May 15 and Sept. 15, 2014 will also be mailed a Free Lunch Certificate to Outback Steakhouse and be entered to win Free Outback for a Year.

“Outback Steakhouse has made a commitment to the community’s blood supply by thanking donors at an important time. The summer season always presents a struggle to find enough blood donors. We hope the extra gratitude offered by Outback Steakhouse brings many donors to support local patient needs,” says Tina Hooper, spokesperson for LifeShare Blood Centers.
