Beginning Monday, Dec. 20, through Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, you can give -- as well as receive -- when WVVA and the American Red Cross partner to present the "Drive of the Day" sponsored by Bill Cole Automall.
Each day, a blood drive in our area will be showcased by WVVA and everyone who gives blood at that location will receive a stainless steel coffee mug -- in addition to the satisfaction of knowing you may have helped to save up to three lives.
There is always a constant need for blood. That blood can only come from a volunteer donor who makes the choice to donate. There is no substitute.
When you make a blood donation, you join a very select group. Currently only 3 out of every 100 people in America donate blood.
From its beginning, the American Red Cross has formed a community of service, of generous, strong and decent people bound by beliefs beyond themselves. The American Red Cross blood donor embodies this principle. Please join the Red Cross and WVVA in our mission to maintain a safe and stable blood supply.
