The American Red Cross encourages individuals and organizations to give something meaningful this winter by making a lifesaving blood donation.

Blood donations decline during the holidays when festivities pull people away from their donation appointments. Seasonal illnesses, such as cold and flu, can also have a serious impact on blood donations. Furthermore, severe winter weather may also cause scheduled blood drives to be canceled.

Despite the busy holiday season and threat of freezing weather, the need for blood remains steady. Donors with all blood types are needed, especially those with O negative, B negative, A negative and AB blood.

Visit GIVEaPINT.org to create your donor profile and schedule your appointment (use sponsor code 0288), or call Helene Mery at 610-837-0792. Walk-ins are also welcome.
