United Blood Services to give away Polaris Ranger this summer

Blood drive to be held in Eagle Butte on July 28

Blood Donors who give at United Blood Services blood centers or blood drives July 11- September 9, 2016 will be automatically entered to win a 2016 Polaris Ranger 900XP in the “Rollin’ Up for a Ranger Giveaway”.

“We are excited to offer this giveaway particularly now because donations have been down,” said Jennifer Bredahl, Regional Donor Recruitment Director, United Blood Services. “We encourage new and existing donors to participate in this fun promotion to ultimately save lives and to ensure our supply is strong enough to respond to any emergencies or traumas.”

Donors are asked to “roll up their sleeves” and donate blood this summer, and when they do they could win the Polaris Ranger sponsored in part by Matt’s Automotive, and M2 Motors in Fargo. Across the region, over 550 blood products are needed each day to serve patients in 108 hospitals.

The next opportunity to donate blood will be on July 28, 2016, in Eagle Butte at the All Saints Catholic Church from 12:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

To donate blood, volunteers must be at least 16 years old (16 year old donors need a minor donor permit which is available online) and be in good health. Must be 18 years or older to win.
