Red Cross seeking blood donations over Thanksgiving holiday

Looking for a way to give to those in need this Thanksgiving? As fewer regular blood donors provide donations over the holiday, the American Red Cross is seeking additional donations for hospital patients.

Those who donate from Wednesday, Nov. 27, through Sunday, Dec. 1, will receive a commemorative American Red Cross T-shirt, while supplies last.

The Red Cross is asking the public to give a patient in need something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. Those who wish to donate can make a donation appointment by visiting redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS.
