Blood drive presents opportunity to give

The holidays bring families and friends together to share in celebrations and special times of giving, but for families dealing with a cancer diagnosis or other major illness, the holidays can be difficult, according to the American Red Cross.

Blood donors are encouraged to invite a loved one to follow in their footsteps and donate blood this holiday season.
