Give Blood for Martin Luther King Day of Service

by Kevin Hagler

Your humble Red Cross blogger giving platelets at a local donation center.

Martin Luther King, Jr. National Day of Service has been an American federal holiday since 1983. While many choose this day to relax, sit around, and enjoy a day off, others choose to celebrate the spirit of the holiday and make today a day ON.

Every TWO seconds someone needs blood. So, serve your community today by giving blood at your nearest donation center. There are blood donation centers in your area! Just go to, type in your area code, and a list of blood donation centers will pop up closeby.

THERE’S STILL TIME! Most donation centers close at 7:00pm.
