The holiday season is known for the spirit of giving and the American Red Cross is asking for your help in giving the gift of life.
The holidays are traditionally a slow time for blood donations. Red Cross spokesman Joe Zydlo (ZIHD-low) says he'd like to see donors offer up one more donation in 2017.
All blood types are needed to ensure a reliable supply of blood is available. Appointments can be made by calling 1-800-RED CROSS, on the new Red Cross Blood Donor App, or by visiting redcrossblood.org
