The American Red Cross is encouraging eligible people to donate blood during National Volunteer Month.

Volunteer donors are the only source of blood products for those in need of transfusions.

The Red Cross said donors of all blood types are needed to help meet patients need this spring.

To donate blood, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit RedCrossBlood.org or call 1-800-RED-CROSS. Anyone who donates blood from bow until May 13 will be entered to win one of three $1,000 gift cards to a national home improvement retailer.
