The need for blood never takes a holiday. And in this season of giving, so there’s never been a better time to give a gift that will cost you nothing.
In the midst of holiday shopping, cooking and partying, please carve out a few minutes to donate blood. The American Red Cross will hold a blood drive on Monday, Dec. 23, from 1 to 6:30 p.m., at Wilton Library, 137 Old Ridgefield Road. For an appointment, call 1-800-RED-CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit redcrossblood.org. Walk-ins will be accommodated. A positive ID is required.
