January is National Blood Donor Month

ABERDEEN, S.D.(Press Release)- As we welcome the New Year, it’s the perfect time to reflect on our goals and aspirations. We all have personal resolutions, but have you ever considered a resolution that not only improves your well-being but also makes a positive impact on your community? This year, we encourage you to make a resolution that can save local lives – by donating blood during National Blood Donor Month!

National Blood Donor Month is observed in January to boost blood donations during a time when they are typically at their lowest. Cold weather, flu season, and holiday activities often lead to a decrease in blood donations, making this an opportune time to raise awareness and inspire action. Let’s make January a month of hope, unity, and compassion by ensuring that patients in need have access to the life-saving blood they require. Together, we can create a meaningful impact on the lives of individuals in our community!

Sign up for our next blood drive, save a local life and check off that box on your resolutions – it’s a win-win!

Every day, countless individuals in your community rely on the generosity of blood donors to overcome health challenges and emergencies. Your decision to donate blood is a great example of kindness in action. By doing so, you’re not only providing hope and support to those in need but also reinforcing the message that compassion and selflessness can change lives.
