  The Blood Drives are scheduled for Thursday, July 20, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Middendorf’s Manchac and   Middendorf’s Slidell.All donors will receive a FREE Thin Fried Catfish Dinner, a FREE Pop-up Lantern, and a FREE pint of Blue Bell Ice Cream. They will also get the opportunity to enter to win a 6500W Portable Generac Generator. Plus, they will definitely enjoy the best feeling ever for helping others.

 “Every one of us has so much going on that it’s tough to add one more thing to the to-do list. By hosting the blood drives at our locations in Manchac and Slidell, we hope to make it more convenient and timesaving for donors,” said Middendorf’s owner Karen Pfeifer. “The Blood Center always does a great job of organizing everything. We just have to help get the word out and get busy making a lot of Thin Fried Catfish for the generous, life-saving donors. We are very thankful to all of them, and we are more than happy to do our part.”
