Now through Jan. 15, donors who give blood with ImpactLife will have the opportunity to support Feeding America with a donation made on their behalf.

ImpactLife will provide all presenting donors with a voucher to redeem for the donor’s choice of an electronic gift card or equivalent value donation to Feeding America, which in turn provides financial support for food banks serving communities across the blood center’s four-state service region and beyond.

“We are so pleased to give donors the opportunity to make an even greater difference by supporting Feeding America,” said Amanda Hess, vice president, donor relations and marketing. “Under our ‘Good Giving’ promotion, donors can now choose to support nutritional needs in addition to supporting our region’s blood supply. What a great way to give back even more at this critical time of year.” 

Through Jan. 15, all donors who come to give blood at ImpactLife donation centers and mobile blood drives will receive a voucher to redeem for their choice of a gift card or equivalent value donation to Feeding America. The value of the gift card or donation will vary depending on the timing and type of donation procedure (for example, whole blood, platelets, or Double Red Cell). For whole blood donations, the value will be $10 per donation but will double in value during the five most critical weeks for the blood supply (dates listed below).
