The Red Cross of Montana recently announced that they are in a 'critical' need for blood! They only have about five days worth of supply. A lot of blood drives happen during the year because of school functions and fundraisers but in the summer time when kids aren't in session is when the supply is most challenging to keep from getting low.

There are currently no community blood drives in the Billings area but you can set up and organize your own blood drive at anytime; at your work, at your church or in your community! Visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-REDCROSS to get an appointment, set up a drive or to get more information about giving blood and the requirements!

Besides helping people in need, right now there are a few giving incentives like movies tickets if you give two times or more! So, why not give?
