Turkeys offered for blood donations in Michiana


Blood donors in Michiana will get an early Thanksgiving treat.  The Medical Foundation Blood Donor Centers is offering a 10-12 pound turkey to each blood donor until November 27.

Donors will get a voucher for a Troyer Turkey that they can use themselves, or donate to the Food Bank of Northern Indiana.  "We want to be sure the needs of the communities' blood supply are met and we have found this promotion to be a great success," said Christina Tembo, Manager of Blood Donor Recruitment.

Appointments are not mandatory, but are recommended.  Donors with appointments will be honored before walk-ins.
