The Red Cross has issued an urgent appeal for blood donations. Busy holiday schedules and getting back in the swing of things in the New Year often lowers donations, but the need for blood is not any less this time of year.
Donors of all blood types are urgently needed now, especially those with type O, AB, B negative and A negative.
If you would like to take some time to help answer this critical need, there are plenty of options available in Hampton Roads.
On Saturday, January 30th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. the Junior League of Norfolk-Virginia Beach is holding a blood drive. It’s taking place in the Chesapeake Room at the Virginia Beach Resort Hotel.
