The American Red Cross encourages eligible blood donors to give one last gift this holiday season and discover the true meaning of giving by donating blood.
Busy holiday schedules and seasonal illnesses, like the flu, can often mean fewer donors giving blood. But for patients with cancer or other illnesses or injuries requiring blood transfusions, the need for blood is constant and doesn’t get a holiday break. The gift of a blood donation only takes about an hour and can give patients a chance to celebrate more holidays to come.
Locally, the blood drives will be held:
Dec. 18 from 9a.m.-3p.m. at Curtis Lumber, 885 Rt. 67, Ballston Spa.
If you cannot make that one, there will be another drive on Dec. 30 from 10a.m.-3p.m. at Saratoga County Maple Manor, 149 Ballston Ave. Clifton Park.
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).
