Because of the holidays and cold weather this is a tough time of year for the local blood banks.

To try to boost the supply, the American Red Cross held a one-day blood drive in Oakdale on Monday. It's called "12 Hours of Giving."

It's the first year of the drive and organizers hope it will become a holiday tradition.
