From Special Reports
A critical blood drive is scheduled for Monday, November 1 at the Senoia United Methodist Church from 1 to 5 p.m.
This blood drive is co-sponsored by the local church and the Optimist Club of Senoia. If you are unable to give, you are encouraged to notify others who may be able to donate. Due to an emergency blood and platelet shortage, donors are strongly urged to give now to help ensure lifesaving blood products are available for patients.
Donors are asked to enter the front door of the sanctuary where they can sign-in and wait while social distancing. (Signs will point the way.)
Attendees are encouraged to make an appointment for the upcoming blood drive either by signing up online at https://www.redcrossblood.org/give.html/find-drive or by calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). NOTE: If the appointment schedule is full, walk-ins may not be able to donate.
Please note the Red Cross is not testing donors to diagnose illness, including COVID-19. If you feel unwell for any reason, please postpone your donation. Individuals who believe they may be ill with COVID-19 should not attempt to donate until they are symptom free for 14 days and feeling well and healthy.
The Senoia United Methodist Church is in the historic district of Senoia and is located at 229 Bridge Street. It is at the intersection of Seavy and Bridge Streets. For those not familiar with the area, you can turn east at the downtown intersection of Main Street and Seavy Street, and go past Matt’s Smalltown Pizza and the Veranda Bed & Breakfast towards the Seavy Street City Park or State Highway 85. The church is on the right – only about 2 blocks east of Main Street.
The need is constant. The gratification is instant. Give Blood. ™
