As people return to schools and offices, the need for blood remains urgent.

The summer months see thousands of fewer donations on average compared to the rest of the year.

We're closing out the month of November in a pleasant way in northern California Tuesday. We'll have some gusty wind tonight and early Wednesday, but December will begin with warmer and drier than average weather.
