Perry’s Ice Cream and ConnectLife are partnering throughout the month of January to promote the critical need for blood donations in Western New York. From January 1st-30th, 2021, give blood at any ConnectLife blood drive and receive a coupon for a free Perry’s Ice Cream pint, redeemable at participating local grocery and convenient stores. Every pint of blood collected can help to save up to three lives.
“As a 4th generation family business based in WNY, supporting our community is one of our core founding values. Expanding on our history of donating a ‘pint for a pint’, we felt the time to support the critical need for local blood donations was never more necessary than now. In partnership with ConnectLife, we set a goal of 2,200 donations during the month of January. In addition, several Perry’s team members are ‘super supporters’ of ConnectLife and aligning Perry’s pint flavor personalities to blood types is a fun, playful way for our organization to bring attention and excitement to the need for donations. Join our team in donating a pint at any ConnectLife Blood Drive in January and Perry’s will thank you with a free pint of ice cream. Together we can make a difference in our neighbors lives.”– Gayle Perry Denning, Vice President of Strategic Branding and Sustainability at Perry’s
