A way we can all make a difference, donating blood
MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - January is National Blood Donation Month, and as most of us know, and officials say the beginning of the year is the most challenging time to recruit blood donors. One in seven patients that go to a hospital will need a blood transfusion, but only 3% of the public gives blood.
Leah Pockrandt from the American Red Cross joined us to discuss the importance of blood donation and how you can help.
