On Wednesday, Nov. 21 from 11:30 a.m. - 7 p.m. donate blood at select Publix locations and get a $10 Publix gift card (perfect timing for last minute turkey trimmings!) in addition to a wellness checkup.
And Friday, Nov. 23 through Sunday, Nov. 25 donate blood at participating movie theaters and get a free movie ticket and Chick-fil-A goodies.
