Every drop counts

Hoxworth rewarding blood donors with special gifts this March

Every drop counts, and Hoxworth Blood Center, University of Cincinnati, is in critical need of blood and platelet donors.

As of February 28, 2023, Hoxworth is in especially critical need of Type O blood donors. All eligible individuals are asked to schedule a donation immediately to help local patients in need.

“Increased usage at area hospitals has depleted our inventory of Type O blood products,” explains Jackie Marschall, spokesperson for Hoxworth Blood Center. “We need the Cincinnati community to schedule a donation as soon as they are able to bolster our blood supply for local patients in need.”

Hoxworth will be thanking donors all month long with special gifts:

  • March 1-2: $20 eGift card for Type O negative donors only at Neighborhood Donor Centers
  • March 1–2: eGift cards for all donors at Neighborhood Donor Centers ($10 whole blood, $15 red cells, $20 platelets) 
  • March 3-24: Free ‘Every Drop Counts’ stainless-steel tumbler for all donors at Neighborhood Donor Centers and select mobile drives.
  • March 27-29: Reds pack jackets at Neighborhood Donor Centers
  • March 30-31: April Fool’s mixed swag at Neighborhood Donor Centers

Appointments are available this week at any of Hoxworth’s seven Neighborhood Donor Centers and mobile blood drives. To schedule a donation, call Hoxworth at 513-451-0910 or visit hoxworth.org
