BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The American Red Cross is hoping WNYers will give blood for the holidays and is offering an incentive to do so.

Starting Monday, the Red Cross is holding a number of blood drives across the region to address a 10-year low in blood supply. According to the Red Cross, it saw a 34.7% drop in blood donors over the course of the last year in Western New York alone.

Part of that push is a call for people to not only donate blood but to make a monetary donation for Giving Tuesday on November 30.

Not only is the Red Cross asking for blood donations this week, but from Monday, November 29 to Thursday, December 16, anyone who gives will be entered in a chance at a private screening of The Matrix Resurrections. Anyone who donated blood in that timeframe will also be given a $10 Amazon e-gift card.

Below is the full list of blood drives around WNY in the next few weeks:
