American Red Cross, Grand Traverse Pie Co. Have Delicious Reason For You To Donate Platelets

The American Red Cross has teamed up with the Grand Traverse Pie Company to entice people to donate platelets on Thanksgiving day. Everyone who attempts to donate platelets will get a delicious pie from the Grand Traverse Pie Company. Platelets are used to treat burn patients, cancer patients and others who are really sick. The shelf life for platelets is much shorter than for red blood cells, so taking a holiday off isn’t possible for those who need these lifesaving blood products.
I am a regular platelet donor, and encourage you to become one too. An apple, cherry or pumpkin pie from the Grand Traverse Pie Co. is a pretty sweet reward for doing something good. You also will be entered into a drawing for a Visa gift card and a Meijer gift card. The Flint Donor Center will be open Thanksgiving Day from 6:30 am to noon. They are located right off I-69 at 1401 S. Grand Traverse St., Flint. To schedule an appointment, call 1-866-725-2140.

There is no greater gift than the gift of life. Be a giver. Get a pie! You deserve it.
