    For your blood, you'll get one frozen and plucked turkey in Tyler.

    Give a pint, get some poultry.

    A blood drive in Tyler is meant to bolster supplies and help put food on the Thanksgiving table.

    Greenberg Smoked Turkey is offering a free turkey to anyone who donates a pint of blood. Owner Sam Greenberg calls it a "win-win deal for everyone."

    It's the fourth year in a row for the free turkey blood drive, which last year saw about 1,600 birds given away.

    The drive, associated with Fort Worth's Carter BloodCare, is at the Harvey Convention Center in Tyler.
