img_0188For ten years, Dunkin’ Donuts has been partnering with the American Red Cross to collect blood and platelet donations. This month, the partnership is back in the form of the Dunkin’ Donors Make a Difference campaign!

When you donate blood or platelets during the month of January, you’ll receive a $5 Dunkin’ Donuts gift card. The $5 DD card can be used toward the purchase of any item at participating Dunkin’ Donuts – including coffee, hot chocolate and baked goods.

It’s a sweet gift for donating during January, but the real reward is the difference you’ll make in the life of a patient in need. Dante Gallucci was a freshman in high school when he was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. He received numerous blood transfusions while undergoing treatment and is now committed to encouraging others to donate blood and platelets to help patients in need. Today, Dante is a freshman in college with a very full schedule, but he still found the time to help us kick off the 2017 Dunkin’ Donors Make a Difference Campaign in the Capital Region.

Donate blood or platelets this month and become a Dunkin’ Donor. Make your appointment now by downloading the free Blood Donor App, visiting or calling 1-800-RED CROSS.
