INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (November 25, 2013) – Indiana Blood Center is partnering with Meijer to ensure an adequate supply of blood heading into the long Thanksgiving weekend.

Anyone who visits select Indiana Blood Center donor centers on Nov. 25 or 26 will receive a $10 Meijer gift card, while supplies last.

Participants will also be entered to win one of three $1,000 gift cards to Meijer. Raffle winners will be notified on Nov. 27 and the $1,000 cards will be distributed in time for use on Black Friday

“Heading into the holiday season is always a tough time for blood centers when fewer donors typically donate due to their busy schedules,” said Shannon Jordan, director of marketing for Indiana Blood Center. “We are grateful to Meijer for its donation of these gift cards, which allows us to thank our donors who take the time to donate blood, while also helping them out with their holiday shopping.”

Blood donated through Indiana Blood Center supports more than 60 hospitals throughout the state.

When: Monday, Nov. 25 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Tuesday, Nov. 26 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
