January is National Blood Donor Month! The Red Cross observes this as a time to celebrate our generous volunteer donors and to encourage others to join our lifesaving mission.

The Junction City & Manhattan Community Blood Drives could use your help. Local Red Cross officials say there is an Urgent Need for blood to ensure there is plenty on the shelves for those in need.

To thank you for helping during the critical post-holiday time, if you give during January, you’ll automatically get entered for a chance to win a trip for two to the Super Bowl in Phoenix! The prize package includes travel, hotel, a $500 gift card, pre-game activities and two tickets to the biggest game of the year! Visit RedCrossBlood.org/SuperBowl for details.
