KOLD CARES: Schedule an appointment with Red Cross to donate blood

TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - The need for blood donations never stops.

The American Red Cross has a critical need of all blood types – especially type O – and platelet donors to make an appointment now to give and help replenish the blood supply after the holiday weeks.

Right now, the Red Cross has less than a three-day supply of type O blood.

That’s why KOLD News 13 partnered with the Red Cross for a blood drive. You can go HERE to pick your time and place to give the gift of life.

KOLD anchor Brooke Wagner has a very special reason to give blood. Hear her story by watching the video below.
