The American Red Cross needs blood donations for the upcoming weeks.
The Red Cross sees a 21% decline in blood and platelet donations during holiday weeks. When blood donations drop, so does the availability of blood products for hospital patients.
All who come to give June 30-July 10 will receive an exclusive Red Cross recycled cotton tote bag while supplies last.
To see a list of upcoming Red Cross mobile/community blood drives in Minnesota, go to redcrossblood.org.
