CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Leaders at the Red Cross say they see a drop in blood donations during the summer months.  

That's why they're making a push to get more people to donate this holiday weekend. 

Starting Friday, the Red Cross will host a Memorial Day weekend blood drive to help supply blood and platelets to patients who need it all summer long.

The blood drive runs from Friday through Tuesday. Those who donate have a chance to get a free Red Cross T-shirt.
