One hour, one gift, three lives. 

MICHIGAN (November 17, 2016) - During a time of year where many give thanks, Michigan Blood is showing its appreciation for blood donors with a gift of gratitude. An hour of one person’s time means not only the gift of life for three Michiganders, but a gift for the donor, as well.

Starting November 22nd in Kalamazoo, and November 23rd in other donor centers, the non-profit will give blood donors a freshly baked pumpkin pie, courtesy of Family Fare.
After closing for Thanksgiving Day, blood centers will reopen Friday, November 25th, to give thanks to donors with Target or Amazon gift cards. This continues through #GivingTuesday, November 29th. On that day, Michigan Blood will also be collecting donations of new school supplies for schools in need in the community.
“We’re inviting blood donors to double their impact—helping people isn’t only limited to blood donation,” said Carleen Crawford, Director of Community Relations and Marketing for Michigan Blood. “Donating school supplies for our area schools in need is just one small way that we can give back to our local communities. We can all contribute.”
