The start of the new year marks National Blood Donor Month – a time to celebrate those who generously roll up a sleeve to keep blood products stocked for hospitals providing critical care. As the busy holiday season winds down and the threat of severe winter weather and seasonal illness cases continue to rise, January can be a tough time for donors to make and keep appointments.
To book a time to give, visit RedCrossBlood.org, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, or call 1-800-RED CROSS. In partnership with the NFL, those who come to give blood, platelets or plasma Jan. 1-31 will be entered to win a trip for two to Super Bowl LVII in Arizona.
Upcoming blood donation opportunities:
Jan. 24 from noon to 5 p.m. at Elks Lodge Warrensburg, 822 E. Young St. in Warrensburg.
