LA CROSSE, Wis. (Nov. 21, 2022) — As many gather for Thanksgiving celebrations with family and friends, the
American Red Cross urges donors to shake up their holiday traditions and plan a time to give blood or platelets in
the coming weeks.
Blood and platelet donations tend to drop more than 20% during holiday weeks, including the days around
Thanksgiving. Seasonal illness and the threat of winter weather can add more concern during a time of year that
is traditionally hard on the nation’s blood supply.
Give thanks and give back – now is the time to make and keep donation appointments. Book a time to
give blood or platelets at RedCrossBlood.org. As a thank-you, all who come to donate Nov. 23-27 will get an
exclusive Red Cross beanie, while supplies last. Thanks to our partners at Amazon, all donors who come to give
blood Nov. 28-Dec. 15 will receive a $10 Gift card by email.*
