Red Cross holiday blood drive starts Sunday

Posted: Updated:

LITTLE ROCK (KATV) - With the holiday season in full swing, the Red Cross has asked that you add one more gift to your list - give blood.

As many as 44,000 blood donations are needed every day across the country to meet the needs of hospital patients.

The Red Cross' holiday season blood drives start Sunday and run across the state through December 31. You can make an appointment to donate on their website by clicking here or by calling (800) RED-CROSS. A list of upcoming blood donation opportunities across the state, arranged by county is at the bottom of this article.

Another holiday option from the Red Cross is the 2012 Holiday Giving Catalog. Shoppers can buy food and shelter for disaster victims, phone cards for members of the U.S. armed forces or vaccinations for an entire village, among many other gifts.

Catalog purchases come with greeting cards for loved ones, letting them know a donation was made in their name.
