With every pint of blood donated to the East Jefferson General Hospital Blood Bank Donation Center this January, you will be automatically entered into a raffle for a free 1-month membership at The Wellness Center.

Donations are needed this time of year now more than ever, and your contribution of blood or platelets could help save someone's life. In turn, receive a chance at a new and improved healthy lifestyle with a 1-month membership to EJGH’s state-of-the-art workout facility.
