Another important area that sometimes gets forgotten during times like these is the need for blood donations.

The holiday season finds most of us focused in other areas and we often have little time to think about donating blood, but it is important to keep out supply of blood at a safe level to help save the lives of others.

Speaking on WNBF’s Binghamton Now Red Cross Blood Services Manager Esperanza Gutierrez says the need for blood will never stop and one pint of blood can help to save up to three lives.

There are several blood drives going on throughout our community over the next several days

There's a blood drive Thursday at the American Legion Post 1194, 363 W Service Highway in Binghamton from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. --  SIGN UP HERE
