OPPORTUNITIES TO DONATE BLOOD LATER THIS MONTH

The American Red Cross is encouraging eligible blood donors to give one last gift this holiday season and discover the true meaning of giving by donating blood. To encourage donations and show appreciation, all those who attempt to donate blood Dec. 24 through Jan. 4, 2015, will receive a long-sleeve Red Cross T-shirt, while supplies last.

Eligible donors with all blood types are needed, especially those with type O negative, A negative or B negative. To learn more about donating blood and to schedule an appointment, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
