Michigan Blood asking you to Give and Go this summer

Allison Beers talks with 7&4's Megan Moore about Michigan Blood's upcoming Give and Go blood drive.

With the summer season around the corner Allison Beers, the Public Relations Coordinator for Michigan Blood in Traverse City is asking people to Give and Go during the busy summer months.

Beers says with all of the summer activities people are less likely to take time out to donate blood.

In an effort to ensure an adequate blood supply, Michigan Blood is asking donors to stop in and donate blood after Memorial Day.

The Give and Go Drive in Traverse City will be held at 2575 Aero Park Drive.

The schedule is as follows:

May 28-30 from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

May 31 from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

As a thank you during the campaign, Michigan Blood is giving everyone who attempts to donate blood a $10 Meijer gas card. Donors will also get the chance to enter a drawing to win a $1000 Meijer gift card.
