BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Blood donations drop more than 20 percent during the holiday season. That’s why Vitalant is hosting it’s “Season of Awe” where donors have a chance to make a huge impact for patients.
When you donate during the “Season of Awe,” you are able to help a patient in need that might not be able to be at home for the holidays.
