American Red Cross encourages blood donations leading into Labor Day weekend
The American Red Cross continues to have an urgent need for blood donors of all blood types to give before the Labor Day holiday. Donors with types O negative, B negative and A negative blood are especially needed.
 The Red Cross says blood donations often decline during the summer months, particularly around summer holidays. 
To encourage donations over the Labor Day holiday weekend, all donors who come out to donate blood August 30 through September 1, will receive a Red Cross mason jar tumbler, while supplies last.
 To learn more and make an appointment to donate blood, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS.
 
Upcoming blood drive opportunities: Aug. 16- Sept. 1
