An American Red Cross Blood Drive is underway at WITN's Greenville Studio. The drive lasts until 1 p.m. today. The studio is located at 317 E. Arlington Blvd. in Greenville. Registration begins at Boulevard Bagel.
Kasey Shue with the Red Cross says the timing of Christmas this year makes donations today incredibly crucial. Since Christmas falls on a Sunday, there will be no blood drives Saturday or Sunday. The Red Cross is counting on today's drives to bring in enough donors to stock local hospitals with the blood their patients need.
For people available to donate this afternoon, the bloodmobile will be at Best Buy at the corner of Greenville Blvd. and Evans St. from 12 p.m. - 5 p.m.
