Lia sits down with Patty Corvaia from the American Red Cross to talk about the “Give back, when you take back” blood drive at Greece Ridge Mall.
You can donate on Saturday (12/29/18) from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
You can schedule an appointment with the Red Cross donor app, or call 1-800-733-2767.
One blood donation can help up to three patients in need. The Red Cross says that it’s especially important to donate around the holiday season, when regular blood donors tend to be busy and blood supply dries up.
If you plan on donating, the Red Cross recommends you eat a meal and drink plenty of fluids before coming in. This will make the process faster and help prevent fainting afterward.
