(Jan. 25, 2021) — The American Red Cross typically has a tough time keeping the blood supply strong during the winter months when inclement weather and seasonal illnesses can impact donors. This year the pandemic adds in another challenge in keeping the blood supply strong. The Red Cross is urging healthy individuals to make an appointment to give blood or platelets this month. There is a blood drive today from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m., at Pine Tree Mall in Marinette.
