Blood donations needed
Placeholder Image
The American Red Cross asks eligible donors to give something truly meaningful this holiday season – a lifesaving blood donation.Blood donations often decline this time of year when donors get busy with holiday festivities and travel. Severe winter weather and seasonal illnesses, like the flu, can also have a serious impact on blood donations, but the need for blood remains steady. On average, the Red Cross must collect 15,000 blood products every day for patients across the country.Eligible donors with all types are needed, especially those with O negative, A negative and B negative.
