I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream, but some of us will scream at the sight of a needle and not in a good way. LifeShare Blood Centers is looking to change that with the help of a little Blue Bell Ice Cream. Starting today and through Saturday LifeShare Blood Centers Shreveport and Bossier City, La. centers will receive a free pint of Blue Bell Ice Cream.

Blue Bell Ice Cream has teamed up with LifeShare Blood Centers to kick off the summer months with a treat for local blood donors. Donors will receive a pint of Blue Bell ice cream in appreciation for their blood or blood component donation at the Shreveport Center, 8910 Linwood Dr. (at the LA3132 Linwood Exit) or the Bossier City Center, 1523 Doctors Drive.

"During the summer months blood donations typically drop due to the lack of high school drives and donors' travel schedules. We are grateful that Blue Bell has partnered with us offering blood donors another reason to come out and donate. The pint of ice cream represents the pint that the donor gives, saving up to three lives with just the one donation," says Tina Martinez, Director of PR and Communications for LifeShare Blood Centers.

Steve Byrd, Sales Executive for Blue Bell Creameries says, "Blue Bell is proud to partner with LifeShare for a great cause."
