WINDOM - The American Red Cross will host a blood donation event from 1:30 to 6:30 p.m. Jan. 6, at the Windom Community Center, 1750 Cottonwood Lake Dr.
This January, during National Blood Donor Month, the American Red Cross encourages people to roll up their sleeves to give blood to help maintain a sufficient blood supply for patients. Donors with all blood types are needed, especially those with types AB, O, B negative and A negative.
Since 1970, National Blood Donor Month has been observed in January to not only honor blood and platelet donors, but also to help increase donations during the winter months. Maintaining a sufficient blood supply for patients is difficult at this time of year because extreme winter weather and seasonal illnesses often impact donor turnout.
To make an appointment to donate blood, download the free Red Cross Blood Donor App from app stores, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
