Red Cross teams up with Dunkin' Donuts for National Blood Donor month

For the seventh year in a row, Dunkin' Donuts and the American Red Cross are teaming up for "Give a Pint, Get a Pound."

Dunkin' Donuts and the American Red Cross have teamed up for the seventh year in a row for the "Give a Pint, Get a Pound" campaign.

Blood donors at all Red Cross blood drives in Central New York and states across the Northeast will receive a coupon for a free pound of Dunkin' Donuts coffee during the month of January.

January is National Blood Donor month, and Dunkin' Donuts and the Red Cross say more than 520,000 pounds of coffee have been given to participating blood donors over the past six years during the event.

"The 'Give a Pint, Get a Pound' campaign helps the Red Cross increase blood collections so that we can provide blood to hospital patients where and when it is needed," said Donna M. Morrissey of the Red Cross Blood Services. "This program reflects Dunkin' Donuts' commitment to the communities they serve, and we are very appreciative of Dunkin' Donuts and our volunteer blood donors for their ongoing dedication to our lifesaving mission."

"Dunkin' Donuts is proud to partner with the American Red Cross once again to provide our coffee as a gift to those who give blood," said Eric Stensland, field marketing manager for Dunkin' Donuts. "We encourage all eligible blood donors to give blood and help those in need in our communities."
