Upcoming American Red Cross Blood Drives Created by kblakeslee on 11/7/2013 2:18:07 PM
INDIANA, (WOWO): In the Indiana/Ohio area about 500 blood donations are needed daily and while that need is constant, the supply of blood sometimes isn't.
“As you reflect on what you are grateful for this holiday season, set aside time to come donate blood,” said Tracy Fox, spokesperson for the Indiana-Ohio Blood Services Region of the American Red Cross. “Your donation can give someone another moment, another day, another holiday to spend with love ones and friends. And that’s something to feel thankful for.”
