Thank you for being a holiday hero and donating at the 55th annual WFMY News 2 Holiday Blood Drive

WFMY News 2 wants to thank you for donating blood!

GREENSBORO, N.C. — For over 50 years, WFMY News 2 has partnered with the American Red Cross to encourage the community to stand up and help others in need. 

This year was no different as the tradition carried on for the 55th annual WFMY News 2 Holiday Blood Drive at the Greensboro Coliseum Special Events Center. 

We want to thank all of you for donating at this year's event! However there's still a big need for blood donations. The American Red Cross is in critical need for all blood types, especially types O negative and positive. Blood and platelet donors are urged to give now to help avoid delays in lifesaving medical care for patients.

Those who give blood anytime between Nov. 18 - Dec. 18 will be given a $5 Amazon.com gift card for their generosity. 

To schedule an appointment, visit redcrossblood.org and enter the sponsor code “WFMY,” call 1-800-RED CROSS or download the Red Cross Blood Donor App available through the App StoreSM and Google PlayTM.
