Blood supplies can fall to critically low levels during the holiday season. Lindsay English with the American Red Cross in Louisville says the organization is asking eligible donors to take time to give a pint of blood.

The Red Cross’s 36th Annual Holiday Hero Donorama will be held Thursday and Friday at the Crowne Plaza Hotel at 830 Phillips Lane.

“We are always trying to reach out to our donors and first time donors and maybe someone who hasn’t given in a few years to come especially during this time of year because the need is always there,” English says. “There’s people spending the holidays in the hospital, so if you can just donate a little bit of your time, maybe an hour, that can make a real difference this time of year.”

The Donorama will be held from noon to 7 p.m. both days. Here’s more information.
