ConnectLife partners with Moe’s Southwest Grill to reward donors in November
All donors will get $5 in Moe’s Bucks as thanks for their generous gift
ConnectLife and Moe’s Southwest Grill are thanking the everyday heroes who give a piece of themselves to save the lives of their neighbors this November. All donors at ConnectLife blood centers and mobile drives throughout the month will get $5 in rewards to be used at any Moe’s, ensuring that “donating never tasted so good!”
The thank-you to donors comes at a time when blood is badly needed at Western New York hospitals, which get 70% of their blood from the local donors at ConnectLife. Cold, flu, and COVID seasons lead to a rise in canceled appointments, while the need for those donations has not dropped. ConnectLife is grateful to have a committed partner in making sure donors know they’re appreciated.
“I choose to partner with ConnectLife because of all the lives they save on a daily basis through the selfless acts of others,” said Reed Styers, Owner & President of Operations at Moe's Southwest Grill Buffalo. “Buffalo is the City of Good Neighbors, and it shows with ConnectLife. If Moe's Southwest Grill Buffalo can help incentivize more people to donate blood, we are all for it!”
In addition to Moe’s rewards, donors also earn rewards points with each visit that can be exchanged in the online store for gift cards, clothing and more.
As WNY’s only community blood bank it is our responsibility to answer the call for blood products to ANY hospital in need, but we need help from blood donors to do that. Please visit www.ConnectLifeGiveBlood.org or call 716.529.4270 for drive locations and to make an appointment.
