Gardner-White is Hosting a Blood Drive on August 24th!

There is a significant need for blood & platelet donors right now. Patients are depending on us. Just one pint of blood can save up to three lives. The need is constant. The gratification is instant. Give blood.™

Gardner-White is sponsoring a blood drive near you on Thursday, August 24, 2017:

As a token of our appreciation, all participants will receive a certificate for $50 off their next purchase at any Gardner-White. Plus, each store will have a drawing in which one participant will receive a $500 Gardner-White gift certificate.

How do I know if I am eligible to donate at the blood drive?

You must be in good health, be at least 17 years old, and weigh at least 110 pounds. You will also need to pass physical and health history reviews prior to donating. There is no upper age limit on your ability to donate. Conditions that require a temporary deferral are pregnancy, travel to certain parts of the world, inoculations, some health conditions and certain medications.

Call 1-800-REDCROSS or visit www.redcrossblood.org to get answers to specific eligibility questions you may have. Final eligibility is determined by medical professionals at the time of donation.

Help us give local kids a great night’s sleep!

We’re teaming up with Fox 2 to make sure local kids in need get a great night’s sleep.

Children need sleep to be healthy and to do well in school and in life. That’s why Gardner-White is donating 1,000 mattresses to children who need beds. Children served by the nonprofit organizations Coalition On Temporary Shelter (COTS) and Humble Design will get new mattresses – and better sleep!

You can help too! Drop off a pair of new kids pajamas at any Gardner-White now through the end of September.
