Blood donations to the Red Cross typically drop off this time of year, but the need stays the same. Sarah Stevermer with the Badger Chapter of the American Red Cross says donations have been down recently, whether because of the flu season, or the economy. And this time of year, donations typically drop off. “Over the holidays, there’s a lot of people traveling, and right now we’re being confronted with the cold and flu season so people aren’t feeling well,” notes Stevemer. “There’s less people donating blood, yet the amount of blood we need every day doesn’t change. To find out where you can donate, call 1-800-GIVE-LIFE, or check the web.
