American Red Cross, Meijer partner to help save lives

March 14, 2011



Lansing, Mich. –The American Red Cross Great Lakes Blood Services Region, in partnership with Meijer, is giving all eligible donors an extra incentive to come out to donate blood or platelets this month.

Throughout the year, the Red Cross has joined forces with Meijer to offer everyone who comes out to donate the chance to win free groceries for a month ($250 value).  So far this year, Judy Fox of Midland, MI and Barb Kaaikala of Greenville, MI have been the lucky winners of the $250 Meijer gift card.

“We are grateful to Meijer for their continued support of the American Red Cross’,” said Sharon Jaksa, CEO for the Great Lakes Blood Services Region of the American Red Cross.  “This is an opportunity to show our loyal donors appreciation while giving an extra incentive to help save lives.”

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