Versiti Blood Center of Wisconsin Partners with Papa Murphy’s to Serve up a Slice of Thanks

Milwaukee – June 30, 2021

Milwaukee, Wis., – June 30, 2021 – Versiti Blood Center of Wisconsin is excited to announce a premier partnership with Papa Murphy’s Take ‘n’ Bake Pizza to thank donors for lifesaving blood donations this summer.

From July 7 – 31, 2021, all attempting donors will receive a coupon code for $10 off their online order of $20 or more, while supplies last. The coupon code is not valid with any other offer and does not hold cash value.
"We are grateful for Papa Murphy's support of our mission, as we work to provide lifesaving blood to our hospital partners,” said Amy Friemoth, director of corporate marketing, Versiti. “Our work wouldn’t be possible without our dedicated partners and donors, and we are so thankful to be able to treat our loyal donors with fun gifts, courtesy of Papa Murphy’s.”

Blood supplies across the country are at critically low levels, and donors of all blood types are needed. O-positive and O-negative blood are most in demand. O-negative blood is the universal blood type given to people in emergencies.

One donation of blood, which takes less than one hour, can help save up to three lives. To schedule an appointment, visit versiti.org.
