The American Red Cross currently has a critical need for blood donors of all blood types – especially type O – and platelet donors to make an appointment now to give and help replenish the blood supply after the holiday weeks.

Fulton County blood drives include: Tuesday, Jan. 7, 11 a.m.-5:30 p.m., Ruihley Park Pavilion, 320 W.
