Red Cross in need of blood donors throughout the holiday season

By Christine Holmes, News Director

For those still looking to give this holiday season, the American Red Cross is in need of blood donors.

Now through Jan. 6, donors will receive a long sleeved t-shirt in return.

Today, Dec. 26, the Red Cross of Southeast Ohio will be stationed at Secrest Auditorium in Downtown Zanesville from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

According to Matthew Riddle, Executive Director of the American Red Cross Southeast Ohio Chapter, the holidays are especially a time of need for blood donors as many of the high school and college students who typically give blood are home on winter break.  

There are several other opportunities to donate in Zanesville and Muskingum County over the two weeks. Here’s the full list:
