Help Local Police and Fire at the 911 Holiday Blood Drive in Muskegon

Getting to be about that time of year again.  You hear bells ringing outside stores....there's a chill in the air...might be a little time away at deer camp....or you might be enjoying a little while someone else is at deer camp....Fall in Michigan has all kinds of great things involved with it!

It's also a time to remind you the need for all of us in Muskegon to protect the blood supply!

Shop Downtown Muskegon Nov 26th
I have been a blood donor since I was able to donate.  It's essential to our community to keep a healthy blood supply on hand because at a moments can change and a blood transfusion is a matter of life and death.  I also know that to a lot of people the thought of needles and blood....well, let's just say it's not for everyone, and that's ok.  However....if you do donate, or have thought of it...there is usually a group somewhere in town doing what they can to make sure that our supply doesn't dwindle.

Who better to organize a Holiday Blood Drive than our local police, fire and central dispatch workers.  After all, they are usually part of the scene when that immediate need for blood presents itself.  The FOP, IAFF and Muskegon Central Dispatch have all come together to ask you to roll up your sleeve on November 23rd....the day before Thanksgiving....which is only a week away  (holy cow! only a week till Thanksgiving).  You'll find the blood drive happening at "The Corner" which is located at 280 W. Muskegon Ave.  It the same lot as the Red Cross in Muskegon but, it's a much bigger space to meet the demand.

Brain Harris recently retired from his job as a Muskegon County Police Officer and now works part time at the Norton Shores Police....but like so many in Muskegon, Brain continues to try and find ways to make things happen around town.  I had a chance to catch up with him at the NSPD to get the details and incentives to get you out to the blood drive on November 23rd.  .

It's important.  The holidays get really busy and the blood supply sees it's highest need at the same time.  It's a simple problem to fix however, take a few minutes to stop in to 280 W. Muskegon Ave on November 23rd and pay it forward a little for everyone in the community and it won't cost you a penny.  You'll find something great to eat...maybe win a prize, but most importantly you'll walk away knowing you did something for someone who'll never know that you gave them the gift of life...and a chance to celebrate one more Christmas.  That my friends is a Christmas miracle!  Thanks to Brian Harris for his never ending commitment to Muskegon.  Sorry bout the handshake at the end man!  :)
