Upcoming blood donation opportunities for Jefferson County in January

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (ARC) — With a new year come many resolutions to form good habits and achieve personal goals. The American Red Cross encourages those who are eligible to resolve to help patients in need through regular blood donations.

Donated blood can give patients in need more time with loved ones. Blood can be used to treat cancer patients, trauma victims, organ transplant recipients, premature babies, sickle cell disease patients and more. In fact, about every two seconds a patient in the U.S. needs a blood transfusion.

As winter continues, donations are especially needed, with many donors unable to give due to inclement weather and seasonal illnesses. Make an appointment to donate blood and partake in a lifesaving resolution by visiting redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS.

Upcoming blood donation opportunities for Jefferson County:

Jan. 20 from 1-5 p.m. at American Red Cross, 1610 W. 42nd St. in Pine Bluff, Ark.
