January is right around the corner and so is National Blood Donor Month!
During the holidays, many people stop donating due to the cold weather and because many blood drives get snowed out in the north. There is usually a shortage of blood during the cold months because of this. Regardless, blood is urgently needed for those patients that are in need.
Here are some places where you can donate blood in Addison and the Corridor.
