Donate Blood With American Red Cross

Dec. 3, 2015;

There’s no gift more thoughtful than the gift of blood to those in need. The American Red Cross is encouraging eligible donors to give blood and help ensure sufficient blood supply throughout the holiday season. A seasonal decline in donations often occurs from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day when donors get busy with family gatherings and travel, but patients don’t get a holiday vacation from needing lifesaving transfusions, so, it’s more crucial than ever to visit your local donation center this month.
