Red Cross prepares for Thanksgiving holiday

With the Thanksgiving holidays fast approaching, the American Red Cross needs your help to save lives. Blood collections decrease during the holidays because of those who are traveling and sick with colds or the flu, but the need for blood increases. You can help by giving blood at one of the following sites. All donors are automatically entered to win two Delta Airline tickets.
Sixteen-year-olds can now donate blood but must have a parent or legal guardian with them and photo ID.
