Thanks for Giving


Blood donors have one less thing to worry about as they prepare for Thanksgiving this month, thanks to SpartanNash and our partnership with Michigan Blood.

Anyone who donates blood at a designated Michigan Blood donor center or blood drive between November 15 and 22 will get a coupon for a free 10-12 pound Open Acres® or Spartan® brand turkey. The coupon can be redeemed at any of the 87 SpartanNash retail stores throughout Michigan.

Blood donations are always down during the holidays as people spend more time traveling — but the need for blood never ends, which means the need for donors doesn’t, either.

Anyone interested in participating in the “Thanks for Giving” promotion will need to make an appointment at miblood.org to donate blood. Donations can be made at any of the main donor centers or at a participating blood drive.
