Red Cross Urges Blood Donations
By Allessandra Messore
Oswego, NY – Blood donations tend to drop by ten percent over the holiday season.
To counter that shortage, the American Red Cross is starting early in encouraging people to donate blood.
The slogan "Don't be a turkey, donate blood this Thanksgiving" will be plastered in all sorts of public places.
Red Cross spokeswoman Andrea Holland says the holiday season is a time for giving.
She says people should contact their local chapter of the Red Cross for appointments and information.
