Donating blood during the holiday season

Posted: Updated:
Nashville, TN -

As we enter the holiday season, the American Red Cross is hoping you'll roll up your sleeves and donate blood.

The American Red Cross says there is a greater need for blood during the holiday season as regular donors are pulled away from their blood donation schedules.

To help encourage people to donate during the holiday season, the Red Cross is offering a free long-sleeve t-shirt for anyone who donates between December 23 and January 3.

There are two ways to donate blood: make an appointment or go to a blood drive.

You can make an appointment online by visiting redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED-CROSS.

You can also use redcrossblood.org to check on upcoming blood drives.
