“Valentine’s Day is a perfect time to show our love and appreciation to the ones who mean the most to us—but it’s also an opportunity to share that love with someone in need,” said Alecia Lipton, Director of Public Relations at Hoxworth. “Every day, people here in our community require blood transfusions for traumas, surgeries, and cancer treatment. What better way to show love this Valentine’s Day than by saving a life through a selfless blood donation?”

Hoxworth is also featuring a “Refer a Friend” promotion during the month of February. Current Hoxworth donors can refer their friends and family to donate blood; should they donate, both individuals will receive a $5 e-gift card.

Appointments for blood donation are encouraged to maintain proper social distancing, and masks are required of all donors at Hoxworth Neighborhood Donor Centers.
