Donors are needed year round to maintain a blood supply.
There's a constant need.
Every single day of the year, volunteers are recruited and donations collected to meet the needs of hospitals.
It takes as many as 550 volunteer donors per day. During the holiday season, volunteer donations often see a decline because of the busy schedules and holiday activities.
The next blood drive at St. Vincent Clay Hospital will be from 9 a.m.-noon, Thursday.
