The Nebraska Community Blood Bank is thanking donors this holiday season, with a campaign sure to put the community in a giving spirit. Beginning Monday, Dec. 19, through Dec. 24, everyone who registers to donate blood at one of NCBB’s fixed sites or blood drives will have the opportunity to choose an envelope containing a variety of prizes. Prizes will include Racquet Club 10-day passes, Nebraska Lottery scratch tickets, Raising Canes buy one, get one cards and other great giveaways.  In addition, one donor will receive a gift certificate for a Super Bowl tailgate party for 20 compliments of Raising Canes.

A complete list of thank you gifts can be found on the NCBB website,

This is second year NCBB has been able to thank donors in this unique way. It continues to be a great reminder to donors about the critical need for blood and platelets during the holiday season.
