American Red Cross encourages blood donations before holidays

 

American Red CrossNashville, TN – The American Red Cross encourages eligible donors to give blood before the holiday season is in full swing.

This often causes a drop in the blood available for patients. Donations are needed in the weeks leading up to the holidays to help offset this seasonal decline.
