The Benton Franklin chapter of the American Red Cross has scheduled several blood drives throughout the Tri Cities Washington. The Red Cross depends on the kind generosity of healthy members in the community to give blood each and every day. The life span of cells is not long, platelets only last up to 5 days and red blood cells last up to 42 days. Visit any of the scheduled blood drives or go to the Tri Cities Donor Center to give the gift of blood this holiday season.
