Give blood and you may just save a life

The American Red Cross will hold blood drives throughout the area as January is National Blood Donor Month, which has been celebrated for more than half a century.

According to a release from the organization, donating blood or platelets can have a lifesaving impact for patients who need transfusions.

"Blood donors make a really big difference with very little effort," said Judy Janssen, who was diagnosed with auto-immune liver disease in 2016 and received regular blood transfusions until she got a new liver in January 2017. "I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for blood donations."

To make an appointment to donate blood or platelets, visit or call 1-800-733-2767. Those individual who donate blood in January will receive a Red Cross t-shirt while supplies last.
