The American Red Cross asks eligible blood donors to make or keep appointments to give blood this winter to help maintain a stable blood supply for ongoing or emergency needs. Though the winter holidays are over, the need for blood and blood products still exists. It is important that the blood supply is maintained regardless of the season because the need is constant.
