The American Red Cross is asking for more donations ahead of the July Fourth holiday. The request comes because during holiday weeks such as the Fourth of July, the American Red Cross sees a 21% decrease in blood and platelet donations, the organization said in a news release.
Those who donate between June 30 and July 10 will receive a Red Cross recycled cotton tote bag, while supplies last, the group said.
