Red Cross asking for blood donations before holidays

Blood donations

LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – Now that the holiday season is gearing up the American Red Cross is reminding eligible donors to consider giving blood.

The holiday season, especially between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, generally sees a decline in blood donations.

That drop-off in donations also means there is less of an available supply for people in need.

All types of blood are needed but there is a special demand for types O negative, B negative, A negative and AB blood.

According to the Red Cross appointments can be made online at redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-733-2767.

There are a number of local blood drives during the first two weeks of November:
