MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The American Red Cross is seeking volunteers to donate blood in the month of December. Donations often decline this time year until New Year's Day. Severe winter weather also causes blood drive cancellations and the need for blood remains steady. 

Organizations can help by hosting a blood drive during the winter months, and eligible donors are encouraged to make an appointment to give blood. Donors with all blood types are needed, especially those with types O negative, B negative, A negative and AB blood.
