The Rhode Island Blood Center and the North Pole are joining together this season to bring some extra excitement to children of blood donors.
Donors can register their children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews – or any child who is important in their lives – to receive a call from the North Pole. Registration is through Friday, Dec. 14. Call 453-8383 to add children to the registry.
The elves at the North Pole (aka the Rhode Island Blood Center) will contact each child on the registry during the week of Dec. 17.
Getting in the spirit of the season not only means that phone call from the North Pole, but also that we remain aware that there are those in our community who will not be able to enjoy the holidays, spending time hospitalized and often in need of blood products. Consider the gift of life this holiday season, and donate blood at any of the donor centers or blood drives. The nearest center is 615 Greenwich Ave., Warwick (behind Sleepy’s).
