GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.-- Michigan Blood is hosting a special blood drive at the Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids clubhouse on Friday, Sept. 5 to benefit GCGR.
For every person who registers and attempts to give blood at this event, Michigan Blood and Crystal Flash will each donate $10 to Gilda’s Club Grand Rapids. As an added incentive, the first 75 people who attempt to donate will receive a $10 gift card from SpartanNash to use at either D&W Fresh Market or Family Fare stores.
The mutually beneficial partnership between collecting blood and treating cancer patients is the reason for this blood drive. Donation drives are essential because 33 percent of blood products are used in the treatment of cancer patients.
