Resolve to give blood in January
The American Red Cross asks eligible blood donors to make a resolution to give blood regularly in 2015, beginning with National Blood Donor Month in January.
National Blood Donor Month recognizes the importance of giving blood and platelets while honoring those who roll up a sleeve to help patients in need. It has been observed during January since 1970, and that’s no coincidence.
Winter is an especially difficult time to collect enough blood to meet patient needs.
Donors of all blood types are needed, especially those with O negative, A negative and B negative. With a shelf life of 42 days, red blood cells must be constantly replenished to maintain an adequate supply for patients.
To learn more about donating blood and to schedule an appointment, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).
Upcoming blood donation opportunities in this area:
Imperial—Jan. 13: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Chase County High School, 520 E. 9th St.
Benkelman—Jan. 9: noon to 6 p.m., 4-H Exhibit Building, 70495 Ave. 338, Fairgrounds
