Augusta, GA (WJBF) – Shepeard Community Blood Center is offering free gift wrap to donors this Black Friday weekend at their Aiken & Evans centers.

According to a release we received, “Shepeard Community Blood Center is happy to be the home of some of Santa’s helpers during the Black Friday weekend this year. As an added benefit to donating blood during the hustle and bustle of this holiday season, Shepeard Blood Center is offering free gift wrap to the community at their Aiken & Evans Centers throughout Black Friday weekend.”

“Blood donors who take the time out of their hectic schedules to donate, particularly during this chaotic time of year, are a rare breed of people. We came up with this concept to simply say thank you to those amazing donors,” says Suzanne Fanning, advertising and communications manager for Shepeard Blood Center.

Shepeard will be opening their doors early Black Friday morning to accommodate earlybird shoppers. “We see selfless donors come through our doors each and every day, but we never get to pay them back for their generosity, so we are excited to be able to do this for them as a small token of our appreciation and thanks,” says Fanning. She went on to say, “Our Aiken and Evans Centers will be open for donations for these times, so we are encouraging donors to bring their holiday gifts to be wrapped while they donate blood.”
