American Red Cross Calls for Blood Donations During the Holiday Seasons

As the holiday season arrives, the need for giving blood remains the same. During the holiday’s donors prepare for travel and family gatherings, and blood donations often decline. The Red Cross wants to encourage donors to take the time to give blood during the busiest time of the season.

The Red Cross invites eligible donors to make an appointment to give blood. This will ensure that there is enough blood supply for patients during the holidays.

From Nov. 26 through Nov. 30, the Red Cross will present blood donors with a limited-edition Red Cross potholder stuffed with unique celebrity chef recipes, while supplies last. Thanksgiving recipes are courtesy of Mario Batali, Rocco DiSpirito, Alex Guarnaschelli and Mike Isabella.

Eligible donors with all blood types are needed, especially those with O negative, A negative and B negative. To learn more about donating blood and to schedule an appointment, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org, call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or view upcoming donation opportunities below.
