For the entire month of January, Rain or Shine will match your pint of donated blood with a pint of ice cream. You can participate in #pintforapint by visiting any Rain or Shine location and picking up a donor card. When you donate at the Oak Street Clinic, a volunteer will give you a stamp that you can redeem for a free pint of ice cream. It's win-win.
