Outback Steakhouse Teams Up with LifeShare to Reward Blood Donors

Beginning May 15, Outback Steakhouse is giving a $5 offer to donors making a blood donation with LifeShare Blood Centers.

Outback Steakhouse and LifeShare Blood Centers have partnered for “Mates Make a Difference” to help avoid a drop in the blood supply this summer. LifeShare will present each blood donor with the $5 off offer and a summer-themed blood donor shirt to recognize the donation. Donors giving two blood donations between May 15 and Sept. 15 will also be mailed an Outback Steakhouse free lunch coupon and be entered to win free Outback for a year.

“It is not unusual to see the blood supply reach a critical level in the summer months. We’re working with Outback Steakhouse to avoid that potentially unsafe situation this year. Blood donors give their time, and a gift that no other source can provide. We’re glad to see community partners recognize and reward donors for that gift,” says Tina Hooper, spokesperson for LifeShare Blood Centers.

These special Outback Steakhouse offers are redeemable at Outback Steakhouse locations in the LifeShare service area. (Locations include Beaumont and Texarkana, Texas; Alexandria, Bossier City, Baton Rouge, Gonzales, Monroe, Lake Charles, and Shreveport, La.
