BUFFALO — The American Red Cross asks eligible blood donors to make a resolution to give blood regularly in 2016, beginning with National Blood Donor Month this month.

For the ninth year, the Red Cross and Dunkin’ Donuts will partner in January to help increase donations and reward generous donors during National Blood Donor Month. Through the “Dunkin’ Donors Make a Difference” campaign, all those who come to give blood or platelets in January at Red Cross blood drives will receive a $5 Dunkin’ Donuts gift card.

National Blood Donor Month recognizes the importance of giving blood and platelets while honoring those who roll up a sleeve to help patients in need. It has been observed during January since 1970, and that’s no coincidence. Winter is an especially difficult time to collect enough blood to meet patient needs. Unpredictable winter weather can result in blood drive cancelations, and seasonal illnesses, like the flu, may cause some donors to be unable to make or keep blood donation appointments.

Donors of all blood types are needed, especially those with O negative, A negative and B negative. With a shelf life of 42 days, red blood cells must be constantly replenished to maintain an adequate supply for patients.

To learn more about donating blood and to schedule an appointment, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

East Niagara donation opportunities will be held:

  • Jan. 10: 10:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., Family Video, 76 East Ave
  • Jan. 12: 1 p.m. - 6 p.m., The Dale Association Incorporated, 33 Ontario St.
