ATLANTA (CBS46) — If you're looking to donate blood this holiday season, consider visiting the Cortland at the Village where the Red Cross will be holding a blood drive. 

The drive comes as blood supply levels reach their lowest point during the year, especially type O and platelets.  

The American Red Cross will be at 2085 Lake Park Drive SE in Smyrna from 3:30 p.m. through 7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 29.

Those who donate will be entered into a raffle for a $50 Honey Baked Ham gift card.
