With summer around the corner the Red Cross wants people to make time to donate blood.
Donations decline during the summer months when schools are out and vacations are in. The Red Cross wants donors to make an appointment to give now to help ensure a stable supply in the weeks and months to come.
"The need for blood is constant. Every two seconds someone is the US receives a transfusion and without volunteers here in the area you know we wouldn't be able to support patients," said Bobbi Snethen, the spokesperson for the Red Cross.
Donors who present to give blood now through May 31st in honor of someone could win one of five $1000 American Express gift cards.
