Red Cross blood drives planned

The holiday season is here, and with it comes the exchange of gifts amongst family and friends. But many hospital patients have a gift on their wish list this year that only generous hearts can give: a blood donation.

Once the hustle and bustle of the holidays subsides, the American Red Cross reminds people to give one last gift — give blood. A blood donation can be the most meaningful gift of the season.

Drives in Jefferson County are planned for:

Dec. 17 from 2-7 p.m. at American Red Cross Blood Donation Center, 1610 W. 42nd St. in Pine Bluff, Ark.

Dec. 20 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Arkansas State Highway & Transportation Department, 4900 Highway 65 South in Pine Bluff, Ark.

Dec. 26 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Simmons First National Bank, 501 Main St. in Pine Bluff, Ark.
