Baptist Church to Host Blood Drive Tuesday

The holidays are here and for most of us, that has meant battling crowds, rushing from store to store and waiting in long linesÖ all in search of the perfect gift.

Local donors had an opportunity to give at the Downing Christian Church on Monday and will be welcomed at the American Red Cross blood drive in Memphis on Tuesday, January 5th. The First Baptist Church will host the drive from 12:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

But the perfect gift is as close as your American Red Cross blood drive. Itís a life-saving blood donation. So this year, leave your worries behind and concentrate on doing something good for someone else.

ďA blood donation provides a true gift from the heart that can give someone another holiday season with loved ones,Ē said David A. Chumley, CEO, Missouri-Illinois Blood Services Region. ďBut blood is only available when generous donors roll up their sleeves. It truly may be the greatest gift someone receives this holiday season.Ē

Life-saving blood must be available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Itís needed for traumas, surgeries, cancer and leukemia treatments, organ transplants and more. There simply is no substitute.

ďBecause people are busier than normal around the holidays, it can be easy to forget to make time to donate blood,Ē Chumley said. ďBut the need for life-saving blood doesnít take a holiday. Every two seconds someone in America needs blood. You can help by giving the perfect gift.Ē

In addition, the Red Cross is proud to present ďThe Perfect Gift,Ē a 3-minute video highlighting the importance of blood donation. We hope it will inspire people this holiday season and beyond. To view ďThe Perfect Gift,Ē log on to
