January is National Blood Donor Month, a time when the American Red Cross recognizes and thanks the millions of dedicated blood donors across the country for helping ensure a stable blood supply for patients in need.
January can be an especially challenging month to collect blood donations because of inclement weather and seasonal illnesses. Throughout the month, the Red Cross is honoring the contributions of those who roll up their sleeves to help save lives, one donation at a time.
Join the nearly four million dedicated Red Cross blood donors across the country and make an appointment to give by visiting redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS.
Upcoming blood donation opportunity in Washington County is on Jan. 14, 2013, from 3-8 p.m. at Willisburg Christian Church, 2681 Lawrenceburg Road, Willisburg.
