Blood can be your great gift

November 25, 2003

Albany - Feeling the need to give - One of the most important things you can donate this holiday season is blood.

More travel over the holiday means more accidents and an increase need for blood. But, donations always go down during the Christmas season. The American Red Cross is asking you to give blood.

"People are busy with parties and events during the holidays, and they often forget to donate blood. But we need 1,000 people to give blood each day across the State to keep the blood supply healthy," said Dian Swafford with the American Red Cross.

For your convenience, the Donation Center on Dawson Road is extending its hours this Friday and Saturday from 8:00AM to 4:00PM.
