R.I. Blood Center announces pint for a pint program

PROVIDENCE – During the month of August, all presenting donors at Rhode Island Blood Center’s six blood and platelet donation centers who are 21 or older can choose to receive a coupon for a free pint of beer.

Participating breweries include Whalers Brewing Company in South Kingstown, Grey Sail Brewing in Westerly, Foolproof in Pawtucket, The Guild in Pawtucket, Proclamation Ale Company in Warwick, and Newport Craft Brewing Co. in Newport.

All presenting center donors in August will also be automatically entered into a drawing to win a pair of tickets to see the New England Patriots home opener at Gillette Stadium on Sunday, Sept. 8.

Donors 16 years and older will be eligible for the Patriot’s ticket drawing. Donors must be 21 years of age to participate in the pint for a pint program.

To encourage responsible drinking, coupons cannot be redeemed on the same day as the blood or platelet donation.
