Blood Donors Encouraged to Give During Holiday Season

Written by on December 2, 2019

More than 1 million units of blood could be transfused in the United States between Thanksgiving and Christmas.


Individuals are urged to give a lifesaving gift this holiday season by making an appointment to donate blood or platelets and help the American Red Cross ensure a sufficient supply is on hand for patients throughout the holiday season. 


Those with type O blood are especially needed.


There are two blood drives scheduled this month in Hardin County.


The first is on December 18 from 2-7pm at the McVitty Memorial VFW Post in Forest.


Another bloodmobile will be held December 23 from noon until 6 at First Baptist Church in Kenton.


Make an appointment now by downloading the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting, calling 1-800-RED CROSS.


You can also enable the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo device.
