Donating blood could land you a free turkey for the holidays.
South Bend Medical Foundation will give a free turkey voucher to anyone who gives blood this month.
On the flipside, if you'd like to donate a Thanksgiving turkey to the Food Bank of Northern Indiana, you can do it at any South Bend Medical Foundation Location.
The Red Cross is also encouraging people around the country to donate blood and platelets, after nearly 100 blood drives were canceled in Sandy’s wake. The cancellations meant a loss of more than 3200 units of blood.
The Red Cross hosts a blood drive November 5th at the Grace Lutheran Church in St. Joseph.
You can also contact the Red Cross
to volunteer with Sandy recovery efforts.
They will host a disaster-training at 3838 Niles Rd in St. Joseph on November 5th. It runs from 6 to 10p.m.
