This Thanksgiving, you can take advantage of a grocery gift card giveaway. The Ebenezer AME Church in Nashville is preparing to hand out 1000 gift cards worth $50 each to help families afford Thanksgiving meals. The event will be held on Nov. 21 and will take place on church property. The gift cards will be kept in the car until the recipient arrives and can only be used once per car. You can enter to win the $100 GC through the website at the link below.

Organizers at the Thanksgiving Day event were surprised to discover that long lines formed hours before the giveaway began. Though a $50 gift card does not stretch as far as it did in previous years, it still helps people in need. To accommodate the large crowd, organizers set up two lanes on Allentown Road and had dozens of church volunteers help move the line. After about an hour, the event began and two lanes were open.

The line stretched for hours, and volunteers worked to move the line. Although a $50 gift card may not stretch as far as it used to, it will still go a long way to help families in need. The first lane was blocked off for traffic and dozens of volunteers fought to clear the area. Once the crowd dispersed, Allentown Road was open to pedestrian traffic. There were two lanes open at a time and the event continued for about an hour.

Another opportunity for a Thanksgiving gift card giveaway is the Blood Assurance event. The company is offering a $50 Shell gift card to donors this Friday. The winners will be randomly drawn at each facility in Middle Tennessee. The participating donation centers include Columbia, Cookeville, Cool Springs, and Tullahoma. Additionally, mobile blood drives will be held throughout the entire service area. This is a great way to give back to the community.

A grocery gift card giveaway is a great way to help people in need. You can donate a $50 grocery gift card to the Blood Assurance in Middle Tennessee. They will present the cards to donors who donate one unit of blood. Each donor will receive a $10 Shell gift card to use at the Somerset Collection’s website. There are two more opportunities to give back by participating. The second opportunity is to host a mobile blood drive in your area. The money raised can be used for emergency relief.
