Make regular blood donation a New Year’s resolution

-A A +A

With the beginning of a new year comes a fresh start. New Year’s resolutions are often made to form good habits and reach new goals. This New Year’s, the American Red Cross encourages people to resolve to help patients in need through regular blood donations.

There are several upcoming blood drives in Oldham County.

As the winter season continues, blood donations are especially needed.

Donations typically decline this time of year, as many regular donors are impacted by inclement weather and seasonal illnesses.

There is no better resolution to make this New Year’s than to help save lives with the Red Cross.

Give the gift of life and help give patients another year with their loved ones. Make an appointment to donate blood at redcrossblood.org or 1-800-RED CROSS.

Upcoming blood donation opportunities include:

  • 4-8 p.m. Jan. 16 – The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 6401 Westwind Way, Crestwood; and
  • 2-7 p.m. Jan. 21 – Ballardsville Baptist Church, 4300 S. Ky. 53, Ballardsville.
