Jan. blood drives for McCracken Co. | Events
MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - Blood drives for the month of January have been scheduled for the Missouri, Illinois and Kentucky areas.
The American Red Cross says January and February are tough months for blood collection. They say blood drives may be canceled because of inclement weather, donors cancel blood donation appointments when the roads are bad and many people have cold and flu symptoms, making them ineligible to give blood.
