Michigan is currently facing a blood shortage and One Bourbon, in Grand Rapids, is offering a little incentive to encourage people to donate blood...free food!

I don't know about you, but food is usually the way to my heart. On Wednesday, June 3, One Bourbon will will be holding a blood drive for Versiti Blood Center of Michigan. The drive will be held on the side parking lot of the restaurant from 3p-7p. And as an added bonus, those who donate blood will receive a coupon for a free appetizer to use when One Bourbon reopens.

Earlier this week, the Versiti Blood Center said that between the pandemic and the recent flooding, they've experienced a blood shortage in the state and are in "dire need of donations." They report that over 4,000 blood drives had been cancelled so it's nice to see a local business step up and help out.

If you're interested in donating, you can schedule an appointment by calling (866) 642-5663. Make sure to have plenty of sustenance prior to donating and everyone is still required to wear a mask upon arrival.
