Red Cross planning 2 holiday blood drives

SHARE Red Cross planning 2 holiday blood drives

The American Red Cross will host two special blood drives around Thanksgiving. You can donate at the donor center in Murray, 6616 S. 900 East, the day before Thanksgiving from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the day after from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Demand for blood supplies stays constant, but supplies drop during holiday periods. Hope is the special drive will give the situation a much-needed boost. Donors will be entered to win turkeys, gift certificates and Jazz tickets. The donor center will also be a drop-off point for the Utah Food Bank during this and other holiday blood drives.

Appointments are encouraged. Call 800-448-3543 or visit www.helpsavealife.org.
