The Red Cross typically sees a decline in donations during the winter holiday season. Individuals can help the Red Cross and hospital patients this month while discovering the true meaning of the season by giving a generous gift of a blood or platelet donation. Each donation made can help save up to three lives.

People in Cadiz can donate from 12 noon to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 7, at St. Stephen Catholic Church on 1698 Canton Road.

“Hospital patients don’t get a holiday from needing blood and platelets,” said Tim Ryerson, CEO Tennessee Valley Blood Services Region. “The closer we get to the major holiday week, the more we see donations decline. People are busy with gift shopping, holiday parties and there is an overall sense of distraction. We need donors to come in and give before they get too busy with other things.”
