American Red Cross looking for more donors during National Blood Donor Month

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.—January is National Blood Donor Month, and the American Red Cross wants to thank all those who role up their sleeve to help save lives.

“Every day in our country, approximately 44,000 units of blood are needed in hospitals to help treat trauma victims, surgery patients, organ transplant patients, premature babies and patients receiving treatment for cancer and other diseases,” said Todd Kulman, communications manager of the Red Cross Great Lakes Blood Services Region. “As the New Year begins, it is the perfect time to honor donors for their commitment to helping save lives through the simple act of giving blood and platelets throughout the year.”

January can be a difficult month to fill the need for blood and platelet donations because of winter weather and seasonal illnesses.  If you’d like to help, the following blood drives are planned through the next month:
