United Blood Services Tuesday kicked off a year-long promotional campaign in Meridian.
The national "Find the Hero in You" campaign is aimed at getting people to donate blood at least three times a year. Donors are being offered a number of incentives.
"With each blood donation, they earn reward points and those reward points are redeemable for experience rewards. So for instance, instead of getting a knick knack like a coffee cup or something with 'United Blood Services' logo, they can redeem those points for movie tickets, music and DVDs and music points like I-tunes and whatever," said marketing director Heather Knight.
Knight says response was so good Tuesday that some donors were not able to be served.
Donors may still register to win a 32-inch flat screen TV and a $100 gift certificate to Wal-Mart.
United Blood Services at 1115 25th Avenue is open various hours Monday through Saturday. No appointment is necessary.
Monday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday 11 a.m. - 6 p.m
Tuesday 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Saturday 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.
