An American Red Cross blood drive is scheduled for 1-6 p.m. Friday (Dec. 6) at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, 519 Kilbourn St., Kewaunee.

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. While helping to save lives is likely motivation enough, those who come out to give from now through Dec. 18 will also receive a $5 Gift Card via email, courtesy of Suburban Propane.

Make an appointment by calling 1-800-733-2767, visiting, or using the Red Cross RapidPass donor app. Blood can be safely donated every 56 days.
