The American Red Cross is asking for help from groups and organizations that would be able to host a blood drive.
Over 6,000 groups are needed across the country to host drives in December, January and February in order to be able to meet the needs of patients who rely on blood products.
In this area, over 100 blood drive hosts are needed during those three months since there is usually a decrease in the number of blood drives held during the winter months.
Organizations who are willing to partner and host a drive between Dec. 20 and Jan. 6 will receive long-sleeved Red Cross T-shirts for all who come to give. Visit redcross.org for more information.
