Give joy. Give life. This holiday season, give the gift that costs nothing but is priceless to patients in need: LIFESAVING BLOOD. With your help, OneBlood hopes to bring smiles to the faces of hundreds of children spending the holidays in our local hospitals this year. Our 15th annual Puppies for Patients kicks off Nov. 1 and runs through Dec. 31. Donate blood or platelets at OneBlood’s North Carolina donation centers and mobile drives and you will have the opportunity to send a message that will then be attached to an adorable stuffed puppy. OneBlood will deliver those puppies to children in area hospitals in an effort to brighten their holidays!
