RED CROSS WILL BE OPEN FOR BLOOD DONATIONS

The American Red Cross will be open Friday and New Year's Day to ensure that local hospital patients have enough blood.

The Red Cross must collect 800 blood donations over the holiday weekend to prevent a drop in the blood supply needed to meet hospital and patient demand.

Blood donors can visit any of the following centers from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday and Saturday: Cheektowaga Blood Donation Center, AppleTree Business Park, Union Road at Bennett Road; Delaware Blood Donation Center, 786 Delaware Ave.; Eastern Hills Blood Donation Center, 4350 Bryant & Stratton Way, Clarence; Hamburg Blood Donation Center, 5161 Camp Road; Tonawanda Blood Donation Center, 64 Broad St., City of Tonawanda. Currently the blood supply is strong, but Type O-negative blood remains below a three-day supply.
