Assemblyman Vince Fong, R-Bakersfield, chats with Lori Fernandez-Lopez, supervisor at the Oswell Street location of Houchin Community Blood Bank, as she prepares to draw blood for one of the first donations at the new facility.

Houchin Community Blood Bank is asking people to donate blood, platelets or plasma during Thanksgiving week, Monday through Saturday, when successful donors can pick a mystery box and have a chance to win up to $500.

The incentive is available at all donor centers (11515 Bolthouse Drive, 5901 Truxtun Ave. and 2671 Oswell St., Suite C) and mobile blood drives.
