Red Cross Seeks Blood Donors

(Washington, DC) — It is one of the happiest times of the year but it is also one of the most challenging times for the American Red Cross. The agency says its blood inventories in the D.C. area have dropped to its lowest supply in more than a decade. The Red Cross is asking anyone who is eligible to donate blood or platelets to roll up their sleeves and make a donation. The organization say it is offering incentives to anyone who donates blood this week through December 16th. A complete list of blood donation locations can be found on the Red Cross’ website.
