Dunkin’ and The Georgia Region of the American Red Cross Team up to Encourage Blood Donors Throughout March
Dunkin’ of Georgia and the Georgia Region of the American Red Cross to give out 10,000 vouchers for a free Classic Donut to blood and platelet donors
Atlanta, GA (February 22, 2021) – Throughout the winter months, the American Red Cross faces the challenge of collecting lifesaving blood products during this critical time of the year. To help recognize the importance of giving blood and platelets and honoring those who roll up a sleeve, Dunkin’ of Georgia is teaming up with the American Red Cross Georgia Region to provide 10,000 vouchers valid for a free Classic Donut from Dunkin’ for Red Cross donors throughout Georgia.
On Friday, February 26 at 9:00 AM, Dunkin’ and the American Red Cross will kick off the partnership at the Atlanta Red Cross Blood and Platelet Donation Center located at 1955 Monroe Drive NE. Throughout March, presenting Red Cross donors will receive a voucher for a free Classic Donut at participating mobile blood drives and select donor centers redeemable at participating Dunkin’ restaurants in the Georgia region, while supplies last.
As COVID-19 continues to affect everyday life, people may not be thinking about blood donation. However, blood and platelets are needed each day to help patients battling disease and facing the unexpected. Donating blood is an easy way to care for each other and ensure hospitals have the blood products patients rely on. All blood donations are currently being tested for COVID-19 antibodies, and those who test positive may be able to support patients suffering with COVID-19 through a convalescent plasma donation or by simply giving whole blood.
“During these challenging times, Dunkin’ and our local franchisees want to do all we can to support those who are giving back to our community,” said Katie Gaston, Field Marketing Manager, Dunkin’. “This program is a wonderful opportunity to encourage blood donations and ultimately help save lives. The need for blood remains constant and we’re excited that Dunkin’ can aid the American Red Cross’ collection efforts through this wonderful partnership.”

Important COVID-19 information for donors
The Red Cross is testing blood, platelet and plasma donations for COVID-19 antibodies. The test may indicate if the donor’s immune system has produced antibodies to this coronavirus, regardless of whether they developed symptoms. Red Cross antibody tests will be helpful to identify individuals who have COVID-19 antibodies and may qualify to be convalescent plasma donors. Convalescent plasma is a type of blood donation collected from COVID-19 survivors that have antibodies that may help patients who are actively fighting the virus. Donors can expect to receive the results of their antibody test within 7 to 10 days through the Red Cross Blood Donor App or the donor portal at RedCrossBlood.org.
The Red Cross is not testing donors to diagnose illness, referred to as a diagnostic test. To protect the health and safety of Red Cross staff and donors, it is important that individuals who do not feel well or believe they may be ill with COVID-19 postpone donation.
Each Red Cross blood drive and donation center follows the highest standards of safety and infection control, and additional precautions – including temperature checks, social distancing and face coverings for donors and staff – have been implemented to help protect the health of all those in attendance. Donors are asked to schedule an appointment prior to arriving at the drive and are required to wear a face covering or mask while at the drive, in alignment with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention public guidance.
