NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — The American Red Cross is partnering with News 2 to encourage blood donations.

The annual Holiday Hero blood drives will be held Dec.12-26 at the Red Cross Blood Donation Center, 2201 Charlotte Avenue, and at mobile sites throughout the area.

“The magic of the holiday season is being able to give something special from the heart,” said Mario Sedlock, director of donor recruitment for the Red Cross Tennessee Valley Blood Services Region. “When you give blood, you’re spreading more than holiday cheer-you’re helping to save lives, and that’s heroic.”

Those who donate from Dec. 22, 2016, through Jan. 8, 2017, will receive a festive long-sleeved Red Cross T-shirt, while supplies last.

Simply download the American Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-733-2726 to make an appointment or for more information. Find a full list of donation sites and times below.
