State's biggest-ever blood drive coming to Woodbury area


Holiday gifts don’t necessarily come wrapped with a bow.

That’s the message American Red Cross officials are hoping to spread with a first-ever event coming this month to the Woodbury area.

On Dec. 23, the Red Cross’ North Central Blood Services Region will hold its largest donation drive to date in Minnesota. The event, dubbed the “Twelve Hours of Giving Holiday Blood Drive,” runs from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Prom Center in Oakdale, located just north of Woodbury.
