February 14, 2011



Lansing, MI –Lansing, MI - The American Red Cross Great Lakes Blood Services Region, in partnership with Meijer, has rewarded one January blood donor with a $250 Meijer gift card.

Throughout the year, the Red Cross has joined forces with Meijer to offer everyone who comes out to donate blood the chance to win free groceries for a month (up to $250 value).  Judy Fox of Midland, MI was the lucky January winner.

“I am a loyal long term donor because it’s the right thing to do”, said Fox. “I am registered nurse and I see the need every day”. Fox received a gift card for groceries in February.

“We would not be able to succeed in the business of saving lives if it weren’t for our generous sponsors, donors and volunteers,” says Sharon Jaksa, CEO of the Great Lakes Region. “We especially thank Meijer for their continued support as we carry on our life-saving mission.”

This February, everyone who comes out to donate blood or platelets will have a chance to win a $250 gift card for March groceries.  In addition, every presenting donor in March will have a chance to win groceries for April.

The Meijer promotion is just one way the Red Cross is hoping to encourage all eligible donors to make an appointment to donate blood.
