Red Cross Hopes You'll Give The Best Gift Of All This Christmas Season (2017-12-19 16:24:52)

The American Red Cross is urging eligible donors to give the gift of life this Christmas.

Donations drop off during the time between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day as folks are busy preparing for the holidays and blood drives get cancelled due to winter weather.

The Red Cross hopes you can find the time to donate soon. All blood types are needed this winter. Platelet donations are especially encouraged the first week of the new year, which is among the most difficult to collect enough platelets to meet patient needs.
