You have a chance to help area doctors and patients by donating blood near the holiday weekend. It is known that the American Red Cross sees a decline in the amount of blood supply available during the holiday seasons. Justin Kern with the American Red Cross explains why this decline happens.
Kern urges you to take this opportunity to donate blood, whether you are a long-time donor or a first-timer. Because of the shelf-life of blood, having donations throughout July will help keep the shelves stocked in case of an emergency. There are several donation opportunities during July in Door County.
