Pancakes go great with saving lives! LifeShare Blood Center is partnering with local IHOP® restaurants to thank donors for answering the call to donate blood. Donors will receive a certificate for a free short stack of IHOP buttermilk pancakes, and a LifeShare donor t-shirt, when donating blood Monday, March 7th – Friday, March 18th, at LifeShare donor centers, or at any mobile blood drive.
The blood LifeShare supplies to area hospitals helps treat patients who are undergoing treatment for cancer, heart disease, and blood disorders.
At a time when many companies are cutting back their investments into communities, LifeShare is grateful to partner with IHOP in demonstrating their sincere commitment to increasing the community blood supply which means more delicious pancakes for blood donors.
“We are very excited to partner with LifeShare Blood Center to help save lives in our shared communities. It’s our privilege to be able to provide a special ‘IHOP Thank You’ to those who donate blood during the ‘Give Blood, Get Pancakes’ campaign,” said Mark B. Williams, IHOP’s SW Region Marketing Manager.
Donors are encouraged to schedule a donation appointment at their local LifeShare Blood Center, March 7th – March 18th to receive a certificate for a free short stack of IHOP buttermilk pancakes, and a LifeShare t-shirt. To schedule an appointment please visit: www.lifeshare.org/IHOP
LifeShare also continues to reach out to businesses and churches to try to schedule blood drives. Young donors are also being asked to give. The number of young donors has dramatically decreased since the outbreak of COVID-19. To inquire about scheduling a blood drive please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
LifeShare continues to practice social distancing at all blood drives, including additional space between donor beds, enhanced and more frequent cleanings, and the use of masks by all staff working with donors.
