Small Groups Encouraged to Host Donor Days to Give Back to the Community
Nebraska Community Blood Bank (NCBB.org) invites you to make giving back simple and fun by hosting your own special Donor Day at one of its donor centers. Donor Day celebrations provide an opportunity for small groups of co-workers, friends, and family to donate blood together.
“Our group came together to donate blood in honor of my nephew Cameron’s birthday. Cameron was born prematurely at 26 weeks and was a fighter,” said Alicia McAtee. “Cameron’s parents are forever grateful for the short time they were able to spend with their son and the gift of blood donation that helped each day. For many of us, it was our first time donating and we were nervous. NCBB staff were wonderful and quickly calmed our nerves.”
Depending on the number of participants, your Donor Day can take place over several hours in a single day or over the course of a few days. To get started, call (402) 486-9402 or email email@example.com and Sandy Lemon will walk you through the steps. It’s recommended to reach out to schedule your Donor Day event at least two weeks ahead of time. For hours and locations of NCBB’s Lincoln donor centers, please visit NCBB.org.
