January blood drives scheduled

Observer staff report
The American Red Cross asks eligible blood donors to make a resolution to give blood regularly in 2016, beginning with National Blood Donor Month in January.
Donors of all blood types are needed, especially those with O negative, A negative and B negative. With a shelf life of 42 days, red blood cells must be constantly replenished to maintain an adequate supply for patients. Individuals who come out to give blood Jan. 1 through Jan. 4 will receive a long-sleeve Red Cross T-shirt, while supplies last.
