IRON COUNTY—The American Red Cross will be hosting a blood donation opportunity on Jan. 28 from Noon to 5:30 p.m. at First Baptist Church in Iron River and on Jan. 29 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Forest Park High School in Crystal Falls.
Donated blood can give patients in need more time with loved ones. Blood can be used to treat cancer patients, trauma victims, organ transplant recipients, premature babies, sickle cell disease patients and others. In fact, about every two seconds, a patient in the United States needs a blood transfusion.
