Red Cross

(Willmar MN-) The American Red Cross urges eligible donors to be the lifeline for patients in need this holiday season by making an appointment to give blood or platelets. While helping to save lives is likely motivation enough, those who come out to give Nov. 18-Dec. 18 will also receive a $5 Gift Card via email, courtesy of Suburban Propane.

10 a.m. - 4 p.m., Rice Memorial Hospital, 502 2nd St. SW
