CIRCLEVILLE — This winter, the American Red Cross is urging people to give blood and be the lifeline patients need. The Red Cross urges donors of all blood types to give blood now to help keep the blood supply stable during the holidays.

Blood donations often decline from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day. Red Cross must collect about 13,000 blood donations every day for patients in need. There aren’t enough people donating blood to help people in need.

Do you know someone who has never donated before? Please encourage them to make an appointment.
