Dairy MAX Blood Drive Promotion "Passion For Pints" Kicks Off June 14Fri, 11 Jun 2021 12:48:11 CDT
A bucket load of incentives awaits participants in the “Passion for Pints” blood drive promotion scheduled for the week of June 14 in Oklahoma.
For the ninth consecutive year, Dairy MAX is hosting “Passion for Pints” blood drives in celebration of National Dairy Month. The drives, hosted in partnership with Oklahoma Blood Institute, reinforce the longstanding commitment dairy
farmers have to their local communities.
Susan Allen, program manager for Dairy MAX, recently visited with Radio Oklahoma Agriculture Network Associate Farm Director and Editor KC Sheperd.
It’s just a way to talk about how dairy farmers give back to the community, Allen said.
When you give blood during the week of June 14 at any of the nine Oklahoma Blood Institute locations, donors will receive t-shirts, ice cream and milk, Allen said.
It’s a great time to give blood, she said.
One lucky donor in Oklahoma will win 52 gallons of Highland Dairy milk as Allen praised Highland for partnering with Dairy MAX for this vital June Dairy Month promotion.
Summer months bring an increased need for blood donations which also saw a significant decrease during the pandemic. One donation can save up to three lives, and since 2013 Passion for Pints has impacted more than 230,000 lives with over 77,000 units of blood donated.
