The American Red Cross is encouraging people to ring in the New Year by donating blood.

As winter continues, blood donations are particularly needed. Donations usually decline this time of year, Red Cross officials say, because many regular donors are affected by the weather and illnesses.

All blood types are needed. A blood donor card and driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Donors 18 years old or younger have to meet weight and height requirements.

To donate blood, call 800-RED-CROSS or visit www.redcrossblood.org to make an appointment.
