ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - This summer, donating blood will score you a free slushie from participating McDonald's.

Until August 28, anyone donating blood on a Monday will receive a coupon for a slushie.

“We are so excited to continue our partnership with the locally owned and operated McDonald’s. Mondays are a challenge no matter the time of year, but they are especially challenging during the summer months while people take extended weekends and vacations. This is a nice way for us to remind the community about the importance of a stable and adequate blood supply,” said Jennifer Bowman spokesperson for RRVBC.
