While many people were searching for the perfect gift to give, some were actually giving a priceless gift, the gift of life.
The American Red Cross Bloodmobile set up shop outside our Greenville studio from 7AM Friday morning until 1PM. People rolled up their sleeves to give blood, a process that takes about 45 minutes total.
The Red Cross says each pint of blood potentially saves three lives. This time of year is particularly critical.
The Red Cross hoped to collect 40 pints on the bloodmobile and 50 at their donor center Friday.
