Michigan Blood Partners With Bennigan's to Boost Blood Supply

Michigan Blood in Saginaw is partnering with Bennigan’s to help boost the blood supply during a time of high need.

On Friday, August 16, every person who attempts to donate blood at Michigan Blood’s Saginaw Donor Center will receive a $5 off Bennigan’s coupon. The coupon is valid for an entrée purchase at Bennigan’s in Saginaw. Donors can donate from 8 a.m.- 3:30 p.m. at the Saginaw Donor Center, 1771 Tittabawasee in Saginaw.

“We at Bennigan’s are delighted to support the volunteer blood donors at Michigan Blood, especially knowing that the blood supports Michigan hospitals like St. Mary’s of Michigan and Covenant HealthCare here in Saginaw,” said Honey Forcier, general manager at Bennigan’s.

Any healthy person 17 or older (or 16 with parental consent) who weighs at least 110 pounds may be eligible to give blood every 56 days. Blood donors should bring photo ID (or two forms of non-photo ID). Appointments (preferred, but not required) can be scheduled online at www.miblood.org or by calling 1-866-MIBLOOD (642-5663).

In Saginaw, Michigan Blood is the exclusive nonprofit blood provider for Covenant HealthCare and St. Mary’s of Michigan.
