The American Red Cross is looking for people to donate blood.

The organization says around the holidays like this upcoming Memorial Day weekend and during the summer months, donations often decrease. Besides blood, they are also looking for platelet donations. This will help stock up for summer when fewer people are anticipated to donate.

The organization says they want donations that will help make up the gap for people traveling and ensure that hospitals and patients have the resources they need.

If you donate between May 26-30, the American Red Cross is giving away free visors.
