There is a dire need for blood donations in the Capital Region. The American Red Cross has teamed once again to offer their "A Pint for A Pint" promotion. When you give blood, you get a sweet treat. According to News 10 ABC, the American Red Cross of Eastern New York has once again teamed up with Stewart's Shops to give blood donors free ice cream. There is a huge need for blood donations in the Capital Region and if you donate a pint of blood you'll get a delicious pint of Stewart's ice cream.

The "Give a Pint, Get a Pint" promotion runs in all twenty counties through the month of June. When you donate, you will receive a voucher for a free pint of Stewart's ice cream or gelato that can be exchanged at any Stewart's shop.

Last year this promotion raised donations 20% and more than 7600 units of blood were donated. To get more information and locations to donate, click HERE.
